A little let down. Thought I would be able to park on the Nahant side and not the Lynn side. Only parking available on Nahant is for residents only. The parking along the the beach is $5, which I think is steep for locals who may want to visit often. Drove down toward Lynn, found free parking past the rotary, but today is the Fourth of July and the time was later in the afternoon... So someone else may not be as lucky on a nice sunny summer day. The tide was in and still a super strong sulfur smell. I'd prefer Revere Beach to Nahant, in a perfect world, neither.
