“Revolutionary!”
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”
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

“An interesting stop”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

The fort itself could be full of surprises, but unfortunately the local teens use it as a hang out and spray paint all over the buildings and sidewalks. According to a couple that was there, they city had recently cleaned it up but was unable to prevent it from happening again. My son, age 13, found it interesting, and anyone that has teenagers knows that's almost impossible. :)

“Graffiti”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The views were magnificent, especially of Boston Light. Park service needs to do some trimming of trees to give you a better perspective of what the views were like when this was an active installation. Get rid of the graffiti! Worth seeing.

“Not the best, but it's worth 15 minutes of your time.”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

It took us about 5 minutes in the late morning to drive up from Nantasket Beach Resort to Fort Revere Park. It was a nice sunny day. We spent about 15 minutes walking to the tower and checking out the fort. The view from the fort is nice and worth the 15 minutes.

There's not much else to do and the grafiti on the fort walls is distracting, but it doesn't take away from the seaside views. The paths to the fort are rugged, but you can still enjoy the views from the parking area. Anyone needing walking assistance would have issues.

There's not a lot to do in Hull so it's worth the effort and time to do something different.
