Gorgeous and historical seaside town with a busy, up-and-coming downtown area. It's nicknamed The Garden City. There are many young entrepeneurs and business owners. It's more of a green city with a plastic bag ban and composting service available by a local company. There are also so many dogs!

Beverly is a very nice small city on the North Shore. There are many nice parks in Beverly along the water like Lynch Park, Independence Park and O'Bear Park. The schools are pretty good. There are nice beaches in Beverly like West Beach in Beverly Farms. There is much to do just outside of Beverly as well like Downtown Salem, the Salem Willows, Stage Fort Park, Bearskin Neck and many other places in Salem, Gloucester and Rockport. There are several housing projects but they aren't that bad. Beverly has a very low crime rate. There are many great neighborhoods like Beverly Farms, Prides Crossing, Rial Side and North Beverly. Beverly Farms and Prides Crossing are very wealthy with beautiful, big houses.
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!
