Hyannis for one week in early August?

We are spending a week in Hyannis in early August with out 12 year old daughter. Do you have any suggestions about fun things to do? We will have a hired car and would like to see as much of Cape Cod as possible. We are not great beach people so do not want to spend our days on the beach. Would love to go whale watching but am a bit concerned having read about so many people being sea sick! We will have spent some time in Boston and some time visiting friends in Connecticut so really want to chill out!

All suggestions as to how we might best use our time would be much appreciated especially considering our " not too hard to please" daughter!

Also could you recommend some good restaurants in Hyannis with authentic Cape Cod food!

Regards.

"We are spending a week in Hyannis in early August with out 12 year old daughter..."

I assume this was a typo and you are vacationing with your daughter?

What things do you like to do since you metnioned that you are not beach people?

Yes we will indeed have our daughter with us!

We would like to explore some interesting places/towns etc to experience the Cape. We have transport so this is not a problem. Mostly day trips and then returning in the evening to have a meal in a nice restaurant and maybe a walkabout.

We do not have a problem with beach. We just find it a little boring. Having travelled so far we want to experience something different.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

Regards.

How early in August is early? The Boston Pops are playing in Hyannis on 8/1/10. Not to be missed if you will be there.
