“I’m gonna tell you a story, I’m gonna tell you about my town…”

“Little town, it’s a quiet village, every day like the one before….”

The opening line from the first song in “Beauty and the Beast” is a solid way to describe the town I live in. It’s a little town, and everyday is pretty much like the day before. It’s not really quiet, it seems like there is always something going on, but it’s still a nice town. There are a lot of really good restaurants, and shops downtown. Ipswich is also home to Cranes Beach, one of the most gorgeous beaches in Massachusetts. There are more beaches than Cranes too, some of which are only accessible by boat. The thing that may surprise people about Ipswich, is that it is bigger than Boston in terms of square miles, it’s really spread out. It can take up to 15 minutes to get from one side of town to the other, as some areas are closer to the center of town than others. My favorite thing about Ipswich, is ¬†how beautiful it is.
