Default Short trip to Hyannis in August

I just booked a 4 day 3 night trip staying in Hyannis. I am looking for ideas for tours sight seeing etc. Taking the ferry over to either Nantucket or Marthas Vinyard I saw a couple bike tours and a "JAWS" Tour in Marthas Vinyard that interests me. Any suggestions? Where is a must eat place or must do activity? Thanks!

Get the F out of Hyannis, unless you're a junkie.

I'm not kidding.

Post this in the NE section, you'll get a lot more info.

Spend a day in Provincetown. If you are offended by flagrant homosexuality though, don't. If you're normal, go. Its a great little town. Lots to see, do, and drink. I'd hit Chatham too. Chatham Bars Inn is nice. Impudent Oyster is fantastic.

Not sure when in August you will be at Hyannis, but if you're there from August 21st to August 23rd you will be able to catch the Grand Illumination and Fireworks show.

Don't know if you have kids, but it a great week for the family.

Ferry to Oak Bluffs, you can then walk to see the neat old gingerbread cottages and tabernacle. Eat at Nancy's or the Lookout. Could also rent a car/bike/moped or take a cab to Menemsha to the beach there, eat some lobster or chowder at -------- drawing a blank on the name - can't miss it right on the fishing pier.
Oak Bluffs is a little honky tonkish but fun and active especially if you have kids. Menemsha is very laid back and Edgartown is nice, a little more up-scale and very pretty.
Provincetown is fun but can be quite a drive in the summer - if you go i like the Lobster Pot for food. Chatham as said before.
It's important to plan when on the Cape or you could be stuck on main roads looking at strip malls and have no fun at all when the beauty is only minutes away.
First pic is Menemsha harbor and my old Blackfin 29, second is the lobster pot in P'Town and the last is Oak Bluffs Harbor

Not too far from Hyannis is the Town of Sandwhich - very pretty old Town and home to Heritage Museum and Gardens - 100 acres of beautiful gardens and 5 museums on side including an antique auto museum, american folk art museum, etc. all of the museums are replicas of classic NE architecture and I did the addition to the auto museum and the tree house. Great spot for kids and adults alike.

Lots of great suggestions here. Heritage Museums and Gardens is great. I would add the Cape Cod Rail Trail, an absolute gem as are the bike trails in the National Seashore. Great place to ride, walk or run.

I agree, Heritage is a good idea, if you have kids check out the new adventure park.

If you do go to Nantucket check out the Whaling museum.
