Revere Beach

Fodor's Review

Just north of the city, Revere Beach, the oldest public beach in America, has faded somewhat since its glory days in the early 20th century when it was a Coney Island–type playground, but it still remains a good spot to people-watch and catch some rays. The sand and water are less than pristine, but on hot summer days the waterfront is still packed with colorful local characters and Bostonians looking for an easy city escape. Most of the beach's former amusements are

gone, but you can still catch concerts at the bandstand in summer. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; showers; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
