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!

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.
Something I like about the public school system in Beverly is that the teachers, for the most part, are all very nice and do a good job at teaching students. I feel like the Beverly Public Schools system is not to bad overall. I would just adjust the fact that when there are going to be school delays or closings they do not update families about it until the last minute. This could be very frustrating because some parents drive their kids to school and it really doesn't make it easier when the city announces a school closing an hour and a half before the school opens. Cabot St. has many restaurants and cool places to go. The restaurants are pretty good, some of my favorites are A&B Burgers, La Victoria and En Fuego. One thing I'd change about Beverly is the diversity. It just isn't a very diverse community and me being African American, I stick out like a sore thumb in certain areas of Beverly.
