Revere, Massachusetts: Historic Coastline Just North of Boston
Located about 5 miles north of Boston, Revere is a small town with a long history. It’s named after Paul Revere, the American Revolution patriot famous for warning of approaching British soldiers. Today, most visitors to the city come for the sand and surf of Revere Beach—America’s oldest public beach, where you can boat or fish off the shore. Alternatively, the nearby Belle Isle Marsh Reservation has a network of hiking trails for exploring the wetlands. Inland activities range from ice skating at neighboring Cronin Rink in Chelsea to watching live horseraces in nearby Suffolk Downs.
Out-of-towners would be remiss not to visit Boston’s fantastic cultural and historical attractions, ranging from Gilbert Stuart’s famous unfinished portrait of George Washington at the Museum of Fine Arts to the interactive exhibits at the Boston Children’s Museum. There’s also the Freedom Trail, which takes you past more than a dozen historical landmarks. The trail goes to Paul Revere's home, the Old North Church (of “One if by land, two if by sea” fame), and Faneuil Hall and then heads over the Charles River before ending at the USS Constitution.
