BEVERLY, MA – on Boston’s “Gold Coast” (North Shore)

Beverly, Massachusetts is a seaside resort and residential community, and Endicott sits adjacent to three of Beverly”s sandiest and most pleasant beaches. These are bayside beaches, great for sunning and splashing, but not roaring with surf.   Endicott is on the outskirts of the town, and is just a few minutes away by cab or shuttle bus.

In the circles of folks who know, Beverly and several of the beautifully situated towns that abut it sit on Boston’s “Gold Coast”. Rockport, Newbury Port, Gloucester, and Marblehead get most of the tourist traffic, offering picture postcard views of the rugged shoreline and of the fishing nets and lobster traps that are still in use in this seacoast economy. Beverly is more domestic; you won’t be able to see many of the grand houses, although the Cabot House and the Hale farmstead give some sense of the history of the town.

We’ll be posting more about the Gold Coast areas — from info about historic Salem, to options for kayaking, biking, etc,
