Beverly Reviews

52 reviews
All Categories
Beverly is a small city just north of Boston. Commuting into the city is easy with the commuter rail being in Beverly with a few different stations. Neighboring and nearby cities like Salem, Gloucester and Newburyport expand "local" hangouts and offer a rich look into the unique history and culture of the small New England fishing communities. There are safe neighborhoods, an up-and-coming downtown area, and local colleges that add a bit to one area Beverly is lacking in- diversity. Beverly is a friendly city with opportunities for socializing that include downtown bars (from divvy to the more posh), outdoor fitness opportunities at some of the beautiful local beaches, and plenty of cafes, sandwiches and sub shops, pizza places and bistros. Overall, Beverly is fun, safe, friendly place to live, outside the noise and traffic of Boston.
Review Beverly
Beverly has the potential to be a very nice city. The roads are always an issue and there needs to be more business diversity. Otherwise, the people are relatively friendly and the schools are pretty supportive. The Beverly High School is newly renovated and has exceptional extracurricular activities.
Beverly might be the perfect little city. Plenty of restaurants and nightlife, parks, art galleries, two colleges, beaches, coffee shops galore, the best-ever consignment store (Plum), all just a 30-minute Commuter Rail ride from Boston.
