For car-free travel
Throw all your gear in a beach bag and head for the T. It doesn’t get any easier than taking the Blue Line to Revere Beach, created in 1896 as America’s first public beach. Walk straight down Beach Street to the sand and surf. The Newburyport/Rockport commuter rail line offers some additional options. Head to Manchester-by-the-Sea and walk to the squeaky sands of Singing Beach.
