Called the “Garden City” and less than 30 miles from Boston, Beverly has a
unique personality– small town charm coupled with a city identity that
includes several communities in picturesque settings:
- Beverly Farms - vibrant oceanfront community with a population of
about 3,500 “officially” extends from Manchester-by-the-Sea to Prides
Crossing and has a thriving downtown area.
- Beverly Cove - approximately one square mile and regarded as the oldest neighborhood in Beverly. The Cove has an active neighborhood association.
- Prides Crossing - historic area between Beverly Farms and Beverly Cove. Aside from a stop on the MBTA Commuter Rail, “Prides” has no formal boundaries. Most locals consider it to exist between numbers 407 and 600 Hale Street.
Excellent access to Route 128, five commuter rail stations, a municipal golf course and airport make Beverly a convenient place to work, visit or live. Easy access to miles of coastline, public parks and open spaces includes more than a half-dozen public beaches. Choices for live theater include the North Shore Music Theatre (theater in the round), the Larcom Theatre, and The Cabot.
Beverly’s downtown is dominated by locally owned shops, as well as unique cafés and restaurants.
