The 22-year-old started celebrating Independence Day one day early with Patrick Schwarzenegger and his famed family on their yacht around the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts on Tuesday.
Freshly graduated from high school, Schwarzenegger and his family are reportedly "close friends" with Swift. His mother, Maria Shriver, is the daughter of politician Sargent Shriver and his wife, Eunice Kennedy Shriver.
Also spending time with the descendants of President John F. Kennedy was Swift's best friend and "Glee" star Dianna Agron. The group, which also included Kennedys Robert Jr., Ethel, Ted, and Rory, also enjoyed the day onshore.
Once night had fallen, "they were all playing capture the flag and tag and had a bonfire," said an onlooker, according to US Weekly.
Although they are just four years apart, Swift and Schwarzenegger did not appear to be romantically involved, according to the insider.
"Taylor was taking photos of everyone with a huge camera and Dianna took one of Taylor with Patrick together," the source added. "She mostly hung out with her girlfriends and played with the smaller kids."
Later on, Schwarzenegger posted on Twitter, "Had such an amazing day. Best 4th of July I could ask for. Hope everyone had a great day!"
He will attend the University of Southern California as a freshman this fall.
In the past, Swift has mentioned her encounters with the Kennedy family. After attending the Sundance Film Festival premiere of Rory Kennedy's HBO documentary "Ethel," about Kennedy's mom Ethel Skakel Kennedy, the singer commented on meeting Kennedy family members.
"The only time in my life I have ever been starstruck was meeting Caroline and Ethel Kennedy," said the "Speak Now" singer. Caroline Kennedy is the daughter of President Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
