Revere Beach has had a number of transformations - when I was growing up there were amusements along the beach. In the late 60s with lots of the Mystic River Jews moving away the area went into decline and after the blizzard of 1978 the area was redeveloped and now hosts condos, apartments and some commercial spaces. The beach remains... More

Revere Beach has the distinction of being the First Public Beach in America. One time it had an Amusement Park called Wonderland, a name the "T" Stop still carries to this day. There have been it's ups and downs these past 20 years, but all in all still a nice place to sit and watch the world go by with... More

Beach could be cleaner. Lunch at Kelly's was amazing, famous for their roast beef sandwiches and Lobster Rolls, we were not disappointed

My first time here after hearing from different people how great it was, well I disagree. Yes the beach is huge but there are so many shells its very difficult to walk into the ocean. The public bathroom is filthy (yes I know it's a "public bathroom") No where to hang your beach bag and towel which was fun trying... More

A quick car ride from Boston. Great for walks along the beach especially at sunset and as an added treat you can watch the planes come in as they are landing at Logan. Don't forget to get done ice cream at Kells.

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
