Bourne, Falmouth, Mashpee, and Sandwich are considered the Upper Cape. Woods Hole, with its world-famous Oceanographic Institute and ferry service to beautiful Martha's Vineyard is here. The Mid-Cape includes Barnstable, Yarmouth, and Dennis. The commercial center of the Cape is here, but it's also an area of beautiful beaches. Hyannis Port, summer home of the Kennedys, is a village that's part of Barnstable. Ferry service to Nantucket runs from Hyannis and, even if you're not going out to the historic whaling island, you might want to stop at the dock for fantastic belly clams from Baxter's.
