Bring an Appetite for Historic Food and Fun in Your Revere Rental Car

The town is named after Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere, and offers a charming roster of attractions. Many of them are historic, such as the America’s oldest candy factory, proving that Revere is a town with lasting appeal. So, grab your Revere rental car and prepare for a tour to remember. 

Kelly’s Roast Beef

Stop one in your Thrifty rental car? Go for a staple of Revere, Massachusetts’ food culture — Kelly’s Roast Beef at 410 Revere Beach Blvd. This fast food eatery has been open for generations and is a favorite with locals and tourists. Their claim to fame is pioneering the roast beef sandwich. Ask anyone who has dined there, and they will certainly agree. Kelly’s Roast Beef serves up hearty roast beef sandwiches, Reuben’s, burgers and seafood items with a side of top-notch customer service. Plus, it’s right next to the beach, another must-visit destination.

Revere Beach Reservation

Just minutes away from downtown’s bustle, you can unwind amidst natural beauty. Revere Beach Reservation was the first public beach in America. Founded in 1895, this beach still brings thousands of visitors annually who enjoy the view, water and shelters, and catch the occasional performance on the bandstand. It’s open year-round, so it’s the perfect place to park your Thrifty rental car and unwind in any season.

New England Candy Confectionery Company

Now you’re in for a treat. Literally. The New England Candy Confectionery Company (NECCO) has been making everyday a little sweeter since 1847, most famously with the NECCO Wafer. You probably also know them as the maker the Valentine’s Day favorite, Sweethearts, that feature cute messages, such as “be mine.” Stop by for a factory tour at 135 American Legion Highway to learn about this icon, which is America’s oldest candy company. And, be sure to stock up your Thrifty rental car with some sweets for the rest of your trip.

Kell’s Cream

Another sweet location awaits at 437 Revere Beach Blvd. The destination is Kell’s Cream. Here the specialty is giant soft-serve ice cream creations and slushes.
