Independence Park, Beverly MA, 2005
Pass the Coco Lopez...
By no means a dry town. Bars everywhere.
Not terribly exciting, sort of grungy and rough
In a nutshell
Beverly isnt famous for nuts.
visit Independence Park
A small park overlooking the ocean, Independence Park was built to honour the Revolutionary War and the birthplace of the US Navy.On my last visit, kids were flying kits in the ocean breeze.

TAKE THE WALKING TOUR OF THE HISTORY OF BEVERLY... YOU CAN DO THIS AT YOUR OWN PACE AND SPEND AS MUCH TIME IN EACH PLACE AS YOU WANT..
The Atomic Cafe: Retro cafe
We stopped at this spot after shopping at Casa de Moda because I needed a quick snack. The Atomic Cafe is right across the street and a really cute spot. I guess it's just refreshing to walk into someplace that's not part of a huge chain. It's just a nice, small town cafe...
Acapulcos bills itself as a "Family Mexican Restaurant and Cantina". The restaurant itself is quite large (there are two halves to it, with an enormous entryway). As with most of today's Mexican restaurants, you are served complimentary chips and salsa with your meal. The...
Nick's Roast Beef: Roast Beef on every corner
I'm not a native so perhaps I'm not capable of understanding the roast beef phenomenon on the north shore. You can find a roast beef "shack" on every corner and there is even a few chain restaurants in the area like Kelly's Roast Beef.
Roast Beef sandwich.
Chassis Bakery: Fine French Boulangerie
Not really a restaurant but you need not worry about leaving hungry. Classic french bakery serving all the mouthwatering pateries, chocolats, and breads you would find in Paris. Some soups and sandwiches are available for those who feel guilty not eating a "meal"...
The Wild Hores Cafe: For the higher class
This place is on the up and up, I saw what appeared to be a Ferrari F-40 parked out front the other night. Get the picture.
So long as your "decent" they wont care. But you might get a few stares if you leave your Gouchi and Armanis behind.
take the commuter rail!
The Boston Commuter Rail network is run by the same folks who run the "T". There are five train stops in Beverly: Beverly Depot, Montserrat, Pride's Crossing, Beverly Farms, and North Beverly, all on the Newburyport/Rockport line.
Check out the web site for station locations and for schedules.

Casa de Moda: A fun spot to shop or just browse for a while
Casa de Moda is full of fun clothes, accessories, jewelry, novelty gifts, sunglasses, candles, greeting cards....you get the drift. Most of the stuff is really nice with not a lot of useless items, so there's plenty to look at. We spent a good amount of time in here - it's a good sized place - and we both bought things. I just got a fun seashell ring and some incense but Barbie boughts more, including a fabulous hot pink bag.
And they don't even seem to mind when you put some of their "quirkier" items on and ask them to take your picture...

Bad Areas of Beverly
If you're not a local, the areas you want to avoid are Bennett Street, Mill Street, Grant Street, Simon Street, and Gage Street. Also, the "designated" housing projects are located on Story Ave, Hilltop Drive (across from the college) and Courtney Drive. Everywhere else is pretty much OK.
