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.
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.
