12 | MAY + JUNE 2015 nshoremag.com As an editor, one of my favorite things about my job is discovering new places on the North Shore. It amazes me that no matter how long you might live in a place, there is always a hidden gem to be discovered. Whether it's a neighborhood restaurant tucked off the beaten path, a new bake house, or a walking trail through our dynamic landscape, the North Shore has some- thing exciting to offer. In this issue, we celebrate these special places in a big way. Writer Alex- andra Pecci rediscovers the beauty of two very historical towns: Ipswich and Essex. Incorporated in 1633 and 1634, respectively, these coastal hamlets offer loads of charm and personality. Bursting with farms, antiques shops, clam shacks, and nature trails, they are not to be missed on your Sunday drives this spring. Writer Jeanne O'Brien Coffey seeks out neighborhood haunts for a story on where the locals dine. These restaurants have been in business for decades and have become institutions in their own right, offering some of the best comfort food around. Managing editor Kiley Jacques and I call out the beauty of our landscape in "Common Ground," a photo essay on some of the breathtaking nature trails on the North Shore. These lands have been preserved for all to enjoy by organizations that have worked tirelessly to pro - tect them from development. In our travels, we also dis- covered hidden gems such as consignment shops, gift galler- ies, micro-dairies, heirloom flower peddlers, museum classes, meaderies, and so much more! If you've discovered a North Shore hidden gem of your own, we would love to hear about it. Send us an email at editor@nshoremag.com.
