You are on the Atlantic Ocean, so why not see it and walk along it? This is a particularly nice ocean walk, with great views of Boston in the distance and the charms, beaches, and nature reserve of Nahant and of historical Lynn Heritage Park nearby. The walking path is varied, from an asphalt path along dunes and beach grasses to a broad concrete walk atop a seawall with steps permitting access to the beach and water. In season, the public beach has lifeguards and is open to sunbathers and swimmers. Special attractions: Ocean, sand beaches, sea bathing, and pleasant late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century seaside homes and cottages.
