Our yearly Boston area walk is back again by popular demand. This is an AMC event to which FreeWalkers and all others are welcome, a repeat of last year's route.  

 

AMC event info

This 14 mile walk has it all -  From beach, marsh, greenway, harbor & river, to ethnic & downtown neighborhoods; sand sculpting contest, cider brewery & more.  Start with a visit to the annual Sand Sculpting Festival on Revere Beach, the nation’s first public beach; see marsh birds at Belle Isle, the last salt water marsh within Boston city limits; put your feet into the ocean at little Constitution Beach;  experience the transitions of Boston’s traditional East Boston neighborhood, serving Italian and now Latin American immigrants, as well as an increasingly upscale population; check out the best view of the Boston skyline at Piers Park;  take the Blue Line from Maverick Station under Boston Harbor and walk along its wharves;  cross the Charles River over locks and dams; walk along the Charles River Basin through Paul Revere, North Point and Esplanade parks; cross the Back Bay neighborhood to the Boston Marathon finish line in Copley Square; and celebrate at the Solas Irish pub.  

Start: We will meet at the upper level plaza that overlooks Revere Beach at the Wonderland Station of the MBTA Blue Line in Revere at 8:30 am. NOTE: There are many locations along the route, supported by MBTA, that make it easy to join or exit the walk. 

Our local guide is Fran Price, a FreeWalker, Boston resident and dedicated walker francine.j.price@gmail.com.
