Possibly this is a great spot in good weather but with temperatures around freezing it is best described as BRACING. A few brave souls were walking their dogs and sea birds were busy enjoying shell fish washed up on the shore. Evidence of the old...More

Nice beach with pretty views of Nahant and Winthrop. They have cleaned it up nice over the years but it lacks little shops or decent restaurants other than Kelly's Roast beef. Too many condos obstruct the sun later in the day. If you want food...More

It's great for walking with family and friends and maybe do some exercise. There are some people using drones around. A drone followed us while walking at night and a friend got scared so we had to leave. The views are amazing during the day....More

This is as close to Boston as you can get on the nation’s first public beach. It has lost its funky tawdriness now that the old amusement park (where I rode my first rollercoaster) is gone and is now a more quiet residential area that...More

Who doesn't love being near the water! Great views and wonderful food nearby. Too bad Bianci's is moving but still a fabulous spot.

Morning jogs or after dinner strolls are great here. Large sidewalks, places to grab food and sit by the beach. Sunset is beautiful. Can get very busy in the summer time

America’s 1st public beach. This beach is a 3 mile long beauty. With nearby Logan Airport there’s always a plane coming in for landing over head.

The last time I visit Revere was for the Sand Sculpting Festival. It has good walking path around it, but it is not very clean and has fishy smell too.

If you’re asking if it’s an affluent part of the greater Boston area, then around Revere beach itself doesn’t appear to be, while if you continue walking beyond Wonderland station, this changes. We’ve been going to Comfort... More

Best way to reach Revere Beach and subway from Comfort Inn... (1 Reply)
Hi All, We are a family of two teenagers and wonder what is the best way to reach Revere Beach and subway from Comfort Inn and Suites Logan Airport Hotel Revere. I have seen suggestions of using only car, some say one could walk. We are renting a car anyway but the distance seem to be quite long or is it ? I have understand that parking is free at the beach area. We will be out a lot so we will return to hotel later in the evenings. Will be in town mid-August. Cheers Roinila

Technically, you're not that far from the beach. You could walk it. You could also take a cab. Just south of you is a large rotary called Bell Circle. The rotary is a large circle with thru traffic moving through the center and other traffic moving at intervals around the outside. Stay on the side of the rotary where the parking lot is for the auto parts store. You will need to use a couple of different crosswalks to get over this really busy section of highway. Ultimately you need to get...More
boston + beach? (4 Replies)
We're planning a trip to Boston for the end of the summer (family of 4 with 2 kids, ages 5 & 8) and along with doing all the obvious family friendly activities--aquarium, science museum, children's museum, sox game, Franklin Park Zoo--the kids expressed interest in finding a beach. I was initially thinking about adding on a side trip to the Cape or maybe Martha's Vineyard but is there a better, or closer, beach to consider? I had heard about Revere beach but don't know much about it. Any...More

Can you take the T or something to reach nearby Revere Beach? Or would it be best to rent a car for a beach day? We are coming the first week of June and are trying to plan a beach day. Thanks JJ

Yes, the T's Blue Line goes right to Revere Beach. You can get off at the Revere Beach stop or the Wonderland stop. Kelly's Roast Beef is the iconic place to go for lunch and it's closer to the Wonderland stop.
