It's a quiet spot in the offseason. You can walk the beach and pick up something to eat at Kellys. Tough to beat.

This is nice beach for an urban area. There is on street parking. There were a lot of families and it's pretty clean. The sand isn't like white sand beaches on a tropical island but it's pretty good. There are some good restaurants within walking distance. Pizza, ice cream and Kelly's Roast Beef which serves lobster rolls, fried seafood, roast... More

Most people would not think twice about not going to Revere Beach, but my husband and I like to go here. We have fond memories of America's first beach and look forward to our yearly visits.

Met nice people there. Very good to bring kids to play with the sand, walk around, and people watching. The view is really nice. And you can watch low flying airplanes that just took off or about to land. However, there are some people who don't care about others and leave their trash by the beach: broken bottles, cigarette butts,... More

As far as beaches around Boston in December, I think it was up to par, but it was cold, a bit dreary and not spectacular. But it was December, so it wasn't terrible.

Okay, it isn't a high end fancy beach, but I love this beach. Its just under three mile crescent shape makes a fabulous shoreline which spectacularly sparkles at night. Pros: a flat, very wide sidewalk that spans the entire shoreline which is a more than perfect venue for roller blading, running, walking, and bicycling. Sitting on a bench at night... More

Revere has really picked up on the summer activities here. There is a lot going on from May to September as well as a farmers market on Thursdays. And there are lots of kid friendly events all summer as well.

If you are a history buff, go online and look at the history of Revere Beach. There is a Youtube presentation with swing music. The beach was a happening place after WWII. It has since reflected the evolutions within the US. Interesting. Oh yes, it is also a beautiful beach where you can swim all day and eat things you... More

We didn't have much time, but wanted to stop at Revere Beach to see the first official public beach in America. My daughter and I love the beach! Since it was October, it was chilly when we stopped, and we weren't dressed to walk out to the water, so we stayed near the pavilions and took photos from there. Beautiful... More
