Beverly has a wonderful variety of downtown, quiet suburbs, and recreational areas. The downtown boasts entertainment venues, restaurants, cafes, and local artisans. The suburbs are full of historic and modern homes. Beverly also has beaches, parks, and public gardens. All of this is secluded and quiet, but it also is a short drive or Commuter Rail ride to Boston!

They have a variety of cafes and parks which makes it an area with space to socialize. There are plenty of outdoor trails and reservations for hikes, walks and runs, catering to an active community. Throughout the year, the City of Beverly hosts a number of community engagement events from 5ks to the Beverly Block Party and New Years Eve Celebration. In downtown beverly, there are many great local restaurants to choose from with all the variety one could imagine; indian, mexican, american, japanese, chinese and more. In regards to school system, Beverly is defintiely in need of work. I would say their public school system is average to below average- they need to invest in qualified teachers who are passionate and engaged in the student learning process. From my own exerience, I can say I wish they had better prepared me for college and other life changes.
Beverly Massachusetts resembles a typical northern and left leaning suburb, one that a couple would move out a city for to raise a family in, and live a quiet and joyful lifestyle. Most people are friendly and welcoming, and you have a sense of safety and comfort wherever you go. The downtown is scattered with small, family owned stores, that will recognize each customer as they know them from church, school, or some other local organization. Children often receive a blissful school experience, with their peers living just blocks away. Parks an beaches are never far, and family and friend can enjoy weekends outside in mild weather. Beverly is typical, and there are many towns just like it. However, I believe typical should imply high quality, apart from average, as that must be why there are many places just like my town. If my definition of the word ‘typical’ is ever adopted, I have no doubts Beverly Massachusetts will be a shining example.
