Boston is not a beachfront town. It is located around the inner harbor. The nearest beaches are some distance away from the City of Boston. And the best beaches are on Cape Cod, and Crane's Beach in Ipswich.

There are some harborfront beaches in South Boston (L Street, for example,) but I would not recommend them to anyone I care about.

Ok well if you're 19 and looking for fun, in the city you ought to try the International Youth Hostile on Hemenway. It's THE perfect location for the visiting teen, and quite nice enough. If you want beach, the best place for you in New England hands down is Hampton Beach, NH. Google these. You will have an absolutely wonderful time there.

How long will you stay in Bostonia and how much can you afford for rooms? Boston hotel rooms in the summer average about $200/night.

What's your spending budget? +-You might be able to get a summer job in Cape Cod or the islands like Nantucket and have them find you cheap lodgings. Seasonal businesses in those areas have a hard time finding the help they need during the summer.

International Youth hostile on Hemenway? HUH!?

Ooh thank you, but I want to stay in Boston and Salem. So there are really no good beaches in Boston? I saw some pics online and they looked really nice.

Well Hemenway is a street in Boston right exactly where you want to be. And those beaches in the pix are in Hampton Beach NH which is 45 minutes outside of Boston. You should definitely go there - you may never come back.

Ew? Well again, what is your budget for the summer? Staying anywhere in the US where there is a nice beach and in the summertime is going to be very very expensive. You're only 19 and a H.S. graduate, so that implies that you don't have a lot of money to spend for your summer vacation. And hotel stays are much more expensive than getting into an apartment share situation for a few months.

I second the recommendation for Crane's Beach and also wanted to mention Manchester by the Sea's Singing Beach. Both are accessible by commuter rail from North Station. Lots of city people head out there on the weekends.

If you want to go to beaches within the city, I recommend the Boston Harbor Islands. The T operates ferry boats which make short (20-30 min) trips out to the harbor. You'll be able to enjoy a nice, clean sandy beach with great views of the city!

I'd also like to hear what your budget is and how many days/weeks you want to stay in Boston, what your transportation situation is, how many trips you plan to make in between Boston and Salem, in order to give you tips that fit your needs a little better.
