Capital of Cape Cod
"The Capital of the Cape," Hyannis serves as Cape Cod's main transportation and commercial hub. The harbor, often filled with private vessels maintained by avid boat enthusiasts, has become the main ferry point for transport to Nantucket Island. The seaside atmosphere prevails throughout the town, as dining establishments serve fresh, local fish and are often filled with visitors waiting for their boat's departure. Those without their own vessels can charter a cruise to the nearby islands. The large wooden homes and buildings are often painted white to reflect the sun; some of these are perched on wharfs over the water. You’ll even see short lighthouses in the town paying homage to Hyannis’ connection to the sea. Plan your visit to Hyannis and other destinations in United States using our United States trip planner.
