Welcome to North Shore

Beyond these suburbs is the North Shore.  The North Shore is made up of the next layers of suburbs, and many of the towns are along the Atlantic Ocean in what we call Cape Ann. 
 
Cities such as Beverly offer the perfect blend of single family homes together with thriving urban centers and access to 4 different stops along the commuter rail.  There is even a neighborhood, Beverly Farms, which has its own Beach, exclusive to the neighborhood.
 
Heading further North is Manchester by the Sea, Ipswich, Gloucester and at the tip of Cape Ann, Rockport.  When in Rockport you can visit the idyllic Motif #1, a fishing shack on Bradley Wharf which is “the most often painted building in America”.
