Located on Bennington Street in Boston, Constitution Beach Park offers a unique view of Logan Airport, Winthrop and people. The beach itself is not huge, it is spacious enough find space to either relax or run around with kids. The sand is soft with shells sparsely mixed throughout and the walk to the water has a gradual slope. The water can appear murky although much of that is due to the sand being brought in and not fully packed. Newer facilities are available and trees provide shaded areas to escape the sun on hot sunny days. Additionally, while on the beach airplanes can be viewed taking off and landing on nearby runways at Logan Airport. Whether you live in the Boston area or are looking for a different beach to enjoy, Constitution Beach Park is a great option that rarely gets overcrowded.
