If you are here in the Summer season, and you want a beach that is easily accessed from Boston without a car, you have a few choices.

One option is Old Orchard Beach in Maine. Amtrak runs a train from Boston North Station to Portland ME called the "Downeaster". In the Summer, it has a stop right at the beach in Old Orchard Beach. Old Orchard is a fun place, with a boardwalk and the traditional honky tonk stores, t shirt places, etc. The beach itself is very nice as well, and August is the best time to be there because the water will have warmed up enough to swim.

Another option is Provincetown. You can take a ferry from downtown Boston to P-town in the Summer and hang out there for a few days. It's got some fantastic National Seashore beaches you can visit, and the town itself is fun as well. It also should be quite safe for a single female.

Finally, if you just want to take a day trip to the beach, perhaps from your base in Boston, you can get to Crane's Beach in Ipswich via the MBTA Commuter Rail and the local public transit agency in Ipswich. They run a bus between the beach, the town, and the train station during summer months. The website is not updated for 2012 yet, but I'm sure it will be running again:

That would be Chirac actually.

But -- more importantly for Chirac -- it would also have been a desperately needed economic leg-up.
According to an association of 20 big French companies behind the Paris bid and a study by the Boston Consulting Group, the Games would have added $35 billion (29 billion euros) to France's gross domestic product over the seven years following. They would also have created 60,000 jobs, most of them in the building, sport, tourism and service sectors.
