More about the Garden City

Beverly offers residents and visitors alike a unique coastal experience only 22 miles from Boston. Once known as "The Gold Coast" many beautiful coastal homes still exist today along beautiful Route 127--local cyclists may cruise from Beverly to Rockport along some of the most beautiful coastline in the world. From a recreational standpoint, Beverly offers thirty parks, nine beaches, five marinas, a public golf and tennis club, and numerous restaurants and shops. Five MBTA stations with direct access to Boston and other local areas, make Beverly an easy and enjoyable destination not to be missed!!

For a city of about 40,000 residents Beverly has a surprising number of pro cyclists calling this slice of heaven home. Tim Johnson, Lyne Bessette, Jesse Anthony and Shawn Milne all accomplished professional cyclists have called Beverly home.
