and December, when chilly temperatures and winter weather keep all but the heartiest vacationers indoors. March through May and again in September through October is the Hyannis shoulder season, so if you are looking for deals when there are fewer crowds but better weather than in November through February, you may want to consider using your timeshare during those months.
Wonderful, Family-Friendly Feel
Overall, its reputation as a family-friendly vacation destination is well-deserved. A Hyannis timeshare is very attractive for families, who can take their kids swimming at the popular Keynes Beach, which has picnic tables, a snack bar, and soft, sandcastle-ready sand. On Main Street, families can keep their little ones entertained with ice cream, an old-fashioned carousel, and mini-golf courses.
Hyannis is one of seven villages in the Cape Cod community of Barnstable and was made famous by its premier family, the Kennedy's, when they made it their summer vacation home. You can still see that home from the outside on historical tours of the area, including some sightseeing boat tours. You can find out even more about the Kennedys and their Hyannis connections at the John F. Kennedy Museum, and President Kennedy is one of many veterans honored at Veterans Beach.
Fun on Sea and Land
The most popular daytime activities in Hyannis center around the water. If you've come between April and October, you will want to head out on a whale-watching tour to see pods of white-sided dolphins, Humpback whales, and many other whale species. The area boasts several beaches, including Craigville Beach, Veterans Beach, and Keynes Beach, and many water activities such as sailing, fishing, and swimming. Onshore, you'll want to visit some of the museums, including the John F. Kennedy Museum, or catch a show at the Cape Cod Melody Tent, which has been putting on performances since 1951.
Nor does the fun end when the sun goes down. While the scene quiets down considerably in the winter months, if you have bought timeshares for sale during the summer, you are sure to find plenty of live entertainment, music, and drinks up and down Main Street. At night, many places switch from catering to families to attracting the 21 and over crowd with live music, and special events. On Main Street, many venues allow for easy barhopping before going back to your timeshare, or you can head out to the beaches for a night overlooking the starry Atlantic skies, perhaps with a drink or two from the beachside bars and restaurants.
So whether you are looking for a beachside getaway or a family vacation destination, a Hyannis timeshare will help you feel right at home in this popular Cape Cod locale.
