I have lived in Beverly my entire life. I commute to Boston for both school and work and with traffic the commute is never more than 90 mins. I would say the average commute is an hour, it all depends on the time of day. I had a great school experience with lots of opportunities. I feel very safe here in Beverly. I have never had any issues with safety concerns. Very family friendly community. The beaches are close. Many options for food. Close to malls and grocery stores. Could not ask for a better city to live in!

This small city has so much to offer... beaches, parks, shopping, commuter rail to Boston, decent schools and churches. There is a mix of population- from very rich (Beverly Farms) to homeless (River Street shelter). There are 3 Colleges in town, art and theaters, small coffee shops and plenty of pizza places (mom & pop style). The city has several neighborhoods that are pretty tight-knit (Ryal Side, Centerville, Cove...) The Cummings Center, a revived shoe machinery factory is a small city within the city of Beverly with offices, doctors, nail salons, even a doggie daycare. The only downfall with this city is the drive to "revive" the downtown/waterfront area by building mid-rise condos everywhere. This, along with the Cummings Center has caused a lot of traffic.
My mother's side of the family has grown up in Beverly MA, and my grandparent had just celebrated their 53rd year living in Beverly. Growing up being apart of this town is something I am grateful for. The community is unlike those found anywhere else. As a child, I loved going down to Dane Street Beach and playing on the old playground, or walking to the library and spending hours in the children's room. As I rent in Beverly for school, I am still shocked at the positivity of this town. When you walk down town, everyone will great you with a smile and a genuine "How are you today?". I love the small, close knit town of Beverly as it was such a positive town to grow up around.
