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

I've been going to Revere Beach since I was a child. I still remember the rides, especially the roller coaster. Although the rides have since been taken down, the beauty of the beach still resides. There are some fun restaurants, like Bianchi's (pizza) and Kelleys (Roast Beef). If you've never been and your from the area, you must visit. They... More

We "discovered" Revere Beach quite by accident - real serendipity !!. Last week, we were travelling to Boston Logan International airport for flight Boston > Dublin >Bristol after a touring holiday in New York and New England. We had to check in mid afternoon, so instead of just having lunch at the airport, we thought we would just look around... More

Sure, Revere Beach has its much trumpeted distinction of being the oldest public beach in the country. It's also accessible via the Blue Line. Other than that, there's little to recommend it, unless you're partial to crowds, traffic jams and long waiting lines at the various greasy spoons that offer fried food. Long gone are the Victorian era grand hotels... More

We made a short stop at this beach. A good place to just chill and while away the time. A late afternoon walk along the shore would be a relaxing activity. I saw very few people at that time, very quiet.

Because this is the 1st public beach in the USA, we decided to make a visit after landing at Logan Airport. Though it's close to the airport the traffic is quite congested and parking at the beach is sparse. Would we do it again? Probably not. It's a beach...but nothing special really marks the historical signifigance of the beach other... More

First time visit to the area. Nice, clean, quiet ~ at least when we were there. Lots of shells. Dog friendly. Great place for walking or for runners.
