I have lived in Revere now for four years, it has been a great overall experience. The education is very different from the past city that I used to live in. The middle schools here offer three different levels for each class. You can take regulars math, honors math, or pre-ap math in middle school.There's a bus and two train stations which makes public transportation very easy here. One thing thing that needs to be fixed is street parking, depending on what side of Revere we talk about the Parking situation is different. Shirley avenue and the area around it don't have that many drive ways, which forces them to have to park on the street. Shirley Avenue is also right next to the beach, every summer there's a sand castle festival which makes the parking situation even worse. It's a good city to live in, it's in an area that it neighbors other cities that have plenty of things to do.

I've been living in Revere, Massachusetts for about 2 years now and I have enjoyed my little town. There are many Central Americans, South Americans, and some White Americans in Revere. The main streets have Hispanic eateries, Italian restaurants, Chinese restaurants and the regular American industries like Dunkin Donuts and 7/11. The safety of the town in pretty good, my family hasn't experienced anything unusual or heard of anything dangerous in the neighborhood. My sister attends the Revere public schools and she enjoys the education and classes. The nightlife seems pretty quiet but it's not much of a problem since Revere is close to Boston which is where many people go for a night out. Revere is family friendly, quiet streets during the late night. The MBTA runs through Revere making it easy to run in and out of the city from Revere. Overall, I've enjoyed living in Revere, especially because of the Revere beach and beautiful atmosphere.
Revere is under a massive transformation. The makeup of the people is changing over night, the architecture and businesses as well. I have lived in the Boston suburbs for over 56 years and to drive down Revere Beach Ocean Drive is surreal. Everything is being knocked down and new Miami Beach looking buildings are going up with Maserati's and Mercedes pulling out of each bldg. garage. Add to that beautiful Point of Pines is filled with some old money (akin to Nahant) and professionals who refuse to move and then on the other side Lynnway is being bought up with foreign and out of state big money. This is East Boston, Charlestown all over again. Anyone with half a brain can see what's happening.
