I’m in a Kennedy frame of mind, what, with JFK Jr. having passed 10 years ago today. The beloved Prince of Camelot met his fate when he crashed his plane–with his wife and sister-in-law in it–off Martha’s Vineyard.
The Cape Cod locals continue to memorialize his life and his father’s. At the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum, some 20 million visitors toured exhibits featuring more than 80 photographs depicting the famous family’s ties to Cape Cod from 1934 to 1963, according to the Cape Cod Times. As much as they were American royalty, they were part of the Cape Cod community.
And no doubt: The mystique of the Kennedys builds the appeal of the Cape as a desirable vacation destination.
If you’re a history buff, why wouldn’t you want to tour the playgrounds of John-John and family and stay in a Cape Cod house rental? The home above affords peace, quiet with its wraparound porch, large guestroom and access to woodlands, bike trails and a private residents’ beach.
You don’t have to be a Kennedy to appreciate all that.
