Revere Beach faces Massachusetts Bay, five miles north of Boston. Its hard sand shore forms a great crescent along the blue ocean for miles, sloping away gradually out to sea, creating an ideal bathing beach. With the Nahant and Winthrop peninsulas framing the horizon, the distant lighthouses and the steamers passing far out to sea, the scenic panorama viewed from the beach by day or night is unsurpassed, described an ad in a 1912 booklet advertising Revere Beach.
