About Beverly

Beverly is an historic seaside community located on the North Shore of Massachusetts, approximately 30 miles north of Boston. With miles of coastline, public parks and beaches and an abundance of open space, Beverly is appropriately called “The Garden City.” Made up of diverse neighborhoods, Beverly is also home to a first-class public school system with high school students on a brand new $78 million campus, many private schools as well as Endicott College and Montserrat College of Art. Transportation options include easy access to Route 128, five commuter rail stations (including the 2nd busiest in the state) and an airport. Beverly has a thriving downtown and multiple business/employment centers and facilities including Cherry Hill Business Park and Cummings Center.
