“Great View of the Harbor and no admission costs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The Fort Revere Park was nice to drive up to and see. It houses the remains of two seacoast fortifications. All that is left is the concrete structure. Would have been nice if it was done up with cannons, etc., as when it was being used as a fort.

The view of the harbor from here is good for some pictures.

“Unparalleled Views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

While visiting the Hull Lifesaving Museum, a "local" recommended we check out Ft Revere Park. Incredible views! Sadly, the remains are covered with graffiti, but even that adds a bit of artistic flair. I just wish there was more information re: the history of the Fort readily available onsite. In this age of smartphones, though, it didn't take long to "read all about it." ;-) I agree with the other posters... pack a lunch and enjoy the views.

“Nice View. Not Spoiled”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is a Revolutionary War fort built to protect the harbor and continued into WWII. Unspoiled by excessive tourism. To food stands or gift shops here. Bring a lunch and a blanket a watch the world go by. A good camera is a must!

“Revolutionary!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This fort, which has magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean and Boston Harbor, was an integral spot for watching for the enemy during the Revolutionary War. Fort Revere Tower is worth climbing the winding stairs to the top, you will never see views like this anywhere else.
Kids love playing in the area, there are spots to have a picnic lunch and an amphitheater where movies and concerts take place throughout the summer. Well worth the out of the way drive to see it. It's about 3-4 miles from Nantasket Beach.

“Ideal place for a picnic and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The views are spectacular from this point! Pack a picnic basket or get takeout from The Red Parrot or Jake's and have a relaxing visit. Bring your camera for photos of the ocean, bay and scenery
