Ditto on Dahon. They're pretty much the go-to guys these days for a decent bike for not a lot of money.
The Boardwalk would certainly do the job, or for a few bucks more, the Mariner (same frame, plus a rear rack and some different hardware in spots). If you really can go up closer to $500, consider the Speed P8. That's what I have. A pretty good compromise between price and componentry.
