About what you can expect from a city beach- a bit crowded and dirty. However, access to amenities nearby including public transport, restrooms, food & drink are handy. No shade at the beach- wanted to note that!

Visited here as is listed as the best beach around. It's goes for miles, with plenty of free parking the day we went. It wasn't too busy so nice and quiet. We haven't been impressed with any of the beaches around here, so this one...More

While we were at Revere Beach, they were hosting the International Sand Sculpting competition. The artistic works with sand were unbelievable! The beach is pretty and clean with plenty of space.

Very large beach that is very well taken care of. Definitely worth a stop if visiting Boston. Also make sure to stop into Kelly's Roast Beef and have a Lobster Roll. Its right across the street about midway up the beach.

No, it doesn't have a boardwalk. I don't know about the nearby beaches but I don't believe they have boardwalks either. Sorry.
