Revere Beach

Revere Beach may not be in the same pristine condition as it was 30+ years ago, but it’s still America’s first public beach (est. 1896).  In the past, it was known as the “Coney Island of New England”, but is still considered a National Historic Landmark.  Here is sort of Part II, so to speak, of the National Sand Sculpting Competition, held at Revere Beach.

  1. The heyday of the “Coney Island” period of revere beach was actually more like 70 years ago. 30 years ago it was at a low point, and has improved considerably in most respects since then.

  2. Thank you for clarifying, Dave – I’m really too young to know either way 😉 All I have is hearsay!

  3. A weird look of the beach…there are no people!!! Love the shots, especially the corvette.

  4. Thanks Bob! Yes, despite the fact that it was a beautiful, HOT day, there weren’t very many people there. They all seemed to be down one particular end of the beach, closest to the vendors 🙂
