As you walk down Revere Beach Boulevard, ready for a delicious lunch after sunning and splashing all morning, expect misty ocean air and Ford Mustang convertibles cranking their pop music up high for all beach-goers to hear. As the oldest public beach in the country, Revere Beach offers a hip atmosphere and the opportunity for a day of summer fun.

For over 100 years, Revere Beach has been the landmark beach for Boston residents and visitors, enjoyed by couples, families, and singles alike. The beach itself is complete with standard shells and seaweed strewn about the warm, dry sand and cool New England water sending small waves to shore, perfect for some boogie-boarding.

If you are eager to return to your sunny-day activities but looking for a quick meal, the famous Kelly's Roast Beef stand is just across the street. The vast menu boasts items such as savory roast beef sandwiches, fried clams, onion rings, and cheeseburgers. You can pick up your food and enjoy it beach-side on one of the many benches or ledges. Walk down the boulevard just a bit to finish your meal off with a soft serve ice cream from Kell's Kreme, which might prove to be one of the best frozen treats you've ever tasted.

The best time to visit is during the day, since the beach is not well-lit after dusk. While most people come during the summer, spring and fall are opportune times for sitting on a blanket (most likely with a warm coat) and watching the beautiful waves crash against the ground. All year long, guests can usually find parking along the boulevard, where they are only a few short steps from the sand.
