By no means a dry town. Bars everywhere.
Not terribly exciting, sort of grungy and rough
Beverly isnt famous for nuts.

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 where locals and tourists alike feel comfortable stopping by.

Kitty O' Sheas:This place is a dump and it's the size of a shoebox. It's always packed with drunk college kids looking to get some ya-ya. Good luck getting served too. By the time you get your next beer, the place'll be closed.Crackers:This joint is even smaller than Kitty's but no less a dump. The food is terrible, and God help you if you go on...more
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 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...
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.
ALL THE LITTLE SIDE STREETS HAVE SOME TYPE OF SHOPS AND STORES YOU CAN VISIT. YOU CAN BUY FRESH LIVE L0BSTERS OR COOKED ONES AT THE CAFE NEXT DOOR..IF YOUR A SHUSI FAN LIKE I AM TRY 'KAME' ON CABOT STREET FOR THE FINEST IN THE EAST. ASK FOR BO...
WALK THE WATERFRONT TRAIL...
Fondest memory: WARM SPRING DAYS ON THE WHARFS,WATCHING THE FISHERMEN WORK AND OFFLOAD THERE CATCH. IF YOU WANT REALY FRESH SEA FOOD BUT SOME OF THE BOAT. IT'S ALOT CHEAPER THAN AT THE STORES.
