The city of Beverly, population 40,000, sits on a peninsula with the Bass River to the west and Atlantic Ocean covering its east and south. The fresh smell of ocean air and tranquility of their streets has kept people there for generations. Residents can take a quick ride into Boston on the commuter rail that passes by their city or drive there themselves in less than 45 minutes.
John Updike’s 30-year residence in the town highlights its strong literary and academic history. In 1775, during the American Revolution, Beverly’s Harbor had the honor of setting forth the U.S. Army’s first military ship called the Hannah, a schooner now residing next to Beverly’s police department. The hardworking nature of this city makes perfect sense when you learn how it is considered the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution with the country’s first cotton mill.
Beverly’s charm was put on international display through the Academy-Award winning film, Manchester-by-the-Sea, which chose Beverly’s downtown as a prime filming location. With an extensive park and garden system, Beverly has earned its nickname, “Garden City”. The area provides a host of education options, including the renowned Landmark School, a school focused on language-learning disabilities. For fun, the downtown area is lined with independent restaurants and a golf and tennis club sits a walk away, never leaving the ocean breeze.
