100 Years After His Birth, A Look At JFK's Cape Cod Legacy

It’s Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer in vacation destinations like Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Monday also marks the 100th birthday of President John F. Kennedy, and Cape Cod is where JFK’s legacy is probably still the most visible today.

Deborah Becker (@wburdebbecker) from Here & Now contributor WBUR takes us to the Cape, where there’s the JFK Museum, the JFK Memorial, the JFK Legacy Walk and, of course, the “summer White House” — the so-called “Kennedy Family Compound” in Hyannis Port.
