  1. Probably not. It's not a big deal around here at all.
  2. The JFK Presidential Library is the best place you could visit for JFK-related stuff. If you're really into it, you might also want to check out the JFK Birthplace house in Brookline.

The house is just there, it didn't have a tour or anything when I went a few months ago.

When we went, there was an audio in every room recorded by Rose Kennedy in the late 1960s and a film about her life as well, but that was a long time ago.

Normally there’s a tour and video, but it’s closed for renovations until next summer. Not sure if it will be open by the time OP will be visiting.

And maybe the Cape. Do the duck boat tour past the compound

I'd guess the presidential library would be the place to go.

He's kind of like Jim Rice to Boston types - we think of him once or twice a year and go "oh yeah, he was pretty good back then" and then go on with our day.

I feel like JFK is waaaay more popular in Ireland than MA lol.

The JFK Museum is excellent and worth visiting even for Bostonians who have never been.

JFK library in Boston. Though he isn’t that big of a deaI anymore.

Don’t try to visit the compound in Hyannis Port. It is all private homes, set back from the street, in a residential neighborhood. There is nothing to see.

Lmao yeah he’s from here but it’s not a big deal to anyone

Go to the Omni Parker House. Its the oldest continuously operating hotel in America and its where JFK and Jackie got engaged. Tons of other history in the building. It has a bar called The Last Hurrah.

Take either the woods hole or Falmouth ferry to Martha’s Vineyard, then head out to a little spit of land off of Edgartown called Chappaquiddick. Beautiful spot. Somewhat marred by that time teddy drove off a bridge at 2am and let the young female intern he happened to be with sitting at the bottom of the ocean in his car while he went to sleep it off. At least he did the stand up thing and alerted authorities 10 hours later, after locals noticed a car underwater, pity that the air bubble in said underwater car only gave the poor girl around 6 hrs of oxygen….

Wrong kennedy

Naaa.... they had a house down there somewhere. Go & see where they spent the summer. The Island's a nice trip in the spring, before the summer crowd arrives. You get to see Island life the way the locals do.

The JFK library is best. Its a really good history of his life, presidency and death. His childhood home in brookline is a national historic site but its closed until summer '23. Dont know if it will be open in May.

You can also go to the Massachusetts State House. Theres a JFK memorial there.

If you want to drive 90 min west, there's an eternal flame in Springfield's forest park.

The Kennedy Legacy Trail in Hyannis is pretty cool.
