The Athens of America
Boston is not ideal for a beach holiday and pales in comparison to what its East Coast neighbors Miami and South Carolina have to offer. However, if you are in Boston and fancy taking a trip to the beach it does have a couple of options. Revere beach can be easily accessed from Boston, with a simple trip on the Blue Line to Wonderland station. Carson beach is similarly convenient, with a trip on the Red Line to JFK-UMass, but is not as nice as Revere. If you want more choice in your beach holiday then it is necessary to go further afield in Massachusetts and the surrounding area.
