It's ironic that these pictures are posting on Memorial Day weekend, because Main Street in Hyannis is now overrun with tourists, and will be until October. I was glad I got down there on a quiet weekday.
I really don't like Hyannis at all, but Main Street is pretty awesome. 'Back in the day', there was not much for teenagers to do on weekend nights, except drive down Main (which is one way), turn the corner, drive up South Street and get back on Main. Over and over. Usually lots of traffic with kids from other towns doing the same thing. Windows down, 1980's music blaring, waving to people, talking to them, shout outs...I don't think anyone does that anymore. It was very 'American Graffiti-esque' but I think that's died out.
So many kitschy souvenir stores.
A real vinyl record store!!!!!
I didn't bother going in. It's not that good a bead store and the prices are outrageous.
In all the years I lived here the first time, and worked just down the street at Channel 58, I've never eaten a The Egg & I. It's been here for a really long time; since at least the 70s.
Outside another souvenir shop.
This place is huge and has all your swimsuit, beach and tshirt needs.
After leaving Main Street I wanted to go down to the harbour but I didn't want to pay to park, so I parked behind the Town Hall where it's free.
I am pretty impressed that I didn't spend a dime on Main Street! So much to buy!
