I adore this beach. The best in the Greater Boston area. I used to live really close & would spend time here very frequently.

My husband and I went to the Revere Beach for a walk yesterday, and were pleasantly surprised by how clean and inviting it was. And unlike many North Shore beaches where there are lines of traffic waiting to get into expensive parking lots, on-street parking is free and plentiful. Clean restrooms are well-spaced along the beach, and one even has... More

This is my go-to for a beach day with the kids, where we can count on plenty of space to spread out, no traffic getting there, free and plentiful street parking, cool water that's shallow a long way out, and shells to find along the shore. If you hit it at the right time you can see the seagulls and... More

The beach is now taken care of by the DCR, and it is clean and safe. There are many life guards, new pavilions, new bathrooms, and the beach is cleaned every night. There is free parking on both sides of the access road, which is right next to the beach. The beach is protected from the open ocean, so the... More

Have been coming to this beach for over 50 years. Have watched the transition from beach side Amusement Park Playground including an old wood Roller Coaster, a double tiered Ferris Wheel, the Virginia Reel and many small parks. Unfortunately as with many of these city parks cheaper air and automobile travel made it possible to travel to newer and grander... More

We had a half a day to burn before our hotel check in time and decided to try this beach to have some rest ... That worked out very well. The beach is easy to get to, close to the airport and downtown, plenty of free parking (actually everything is free). It lasts for a few miles, so no problems... More

Walked the beach and ended up at Kellys...See review. The beach has some very colorful characters. Great place to people watch. There was a great sand castle expo. All in all an interesting place.

As a young child and teen Revere Beach was the place to go for sun and sand. Back then it was dirty and not well maintained. What a difference 30+ years can make. The area was clean. From beach to streets and sidwalks. Plenty of space for fun in the sun. Plenty of places to eat and of course when... More

I should not have gone on a Sunday, but I did! Well if you like to spend hours just cruising trying to find a place to park, this is it. If you like a beach that is huge but with almost the entire population of the USA on it, this is it. Still the water was wet and cool on... More
