Kelly's is a Roast Beef, Fried Clam, Clam Chowder, Lobster Roll shack on Revere Beach, which is about five minutes north of Boston's Logan Airport. Revere Beach is the USA's first public beach. Its "heyday" was the roaring 20's. It was a big destination until the 50's when it started to fall into disrepair. I remember the last days of the amusement park that came down in the 60's.
Kally's was founded in the early 50's and is one of the few landmarks that has survived time. In my early adulthood, I spent many an evening there having (I confess) hangover food. I greeted the sunrise on more than one occasion....realizing it was time for work!
Still make the trek there from RI once or twice a year.....have to say hello to and feed my old seagull friends!
Eagle Beach, exploring the "Outback", Madi's tour to the Natural Pool , dinner at Papiamento's
I'm spoiled by living on Cape Cod, and there are awesome beaches less than 10 minutes away! I probably get there two or three times a week. However..................it is a looooong cold winter, raw and windy, with no real Spring.
We've "had it" by March, so it's the perfect time to get away to somewhere warm and sunny with a great beach!
I guess the closest beach to us is about 35 min away... My mil owns a small condo in wildwood (about 2 hrs from me) we try and get down at least once during the summer. (she usually rents it out) we usually hit the pool. (dh hates the sand on his feet,,,, and married me who loves the beach! But the jersey beaches sure do not stand up to the beach in aruba.. Not even close!!!
I'm about an hour away from the CT shore, about 2 hours if I want to make the trek to RI. One of my brothers has a pool, and as an absolute resort, I'll hang at his pool. I much rather get sand between my toes. While CT or RI beaches are not as nice as Aruba, it does the trick.
A southerner chiming in on this one. I live in Houston and Galveston is about an hours drive away. My parents own a home on the beach there which we go to during the summer which can run from April - Sept here in Texas. Doesn't come close to Aruba though; water is brown, sand is brown...but it is a beach none the less and a nice quick get away with the kidlet. We've already schedule a week at the house this July and will be there over the 4th as well. LOVE "doing" our own fireworks.
Today is/was a hot, sunny day in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I took off from my local airport and flew down to Cape May and then all along the New Jersey coast, almost to Sandy hook. The beaches looked great, even if the water is probably a little cold.
