Walk from Revere Beach to Copley Square, Boston

Trip dates: Saturday, July 27, 2019 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM

[Rain Date: Sun, July 28] This 12+ mile walk (with shorter options) has it all - ocean, marsh, beach, harbor, river, and ethnic and downtown neighborhoods. It starts with a visit to the annual Sand Sculpting Contest, passes through East Boston including a lunch stop, the Boston Waterfront, the edges of Charlestown and Cambridge, the Boston Esplanade and the Commonwealth Mall, ending at the Boston Marathon finish line. Enjoy a summer day of walking, and celebrate completion of the route at the Solis Irish pub. This walk has become an annual tradition and is a joint venture with FreeWalkers. Meet at 8:30am at the Wonderland Station (MBTA Blue Line) on the upper level plaza that overlooks Revere Beach. The meeting place is two flight up from the subway tracks. Be prepared with water, sunscreen, bug spray (for marsh), snacks, and for those with special or limited diets, a packed lunch. (Mid-day stop has limited lunch options.) $1 charge for non AMC members. NOTE: If you do not want to complete the entire 12+ miles, there are many MBTA stops along the route that make it easy to exit the walk. If any doubt about postponement due to rain, contact one of the leaders. Questions? Contact one of the leaders. Leaders: Nancy Cahn, Fran Price
