Danvers has the best public school systems around. Kids will no doubt get a great education just as I did throughout my childhood growing up here. There is rarely any crime and the local neighborhoods are safe and comfortable. The downtown could use some renovations, but you can't go wrong with any of the local food stops. Danvers is a great place for families!

The area is very quite. It is good place to raise a family, making friends throughout high school, and create amazing memories with family and friends. After high school, there isn't much things to do. You need a car since there is no public transportation. Although it is pretty close the a popular mall giving young kids, college students, and others job opportunities. Not many restaurants to enjoy a nice night out with your friends, family or other.
Danvers, Ma is a prominently white community. Growing up in this town with very minuscule violence and crime, it was a very safe environment. If you have no plans of growing a family and settling down in a quiet suburb, this is not the place for you. I dislike the little to no diversity in this town. It is such a small town, everyone is either related to each other or grew up with each other. Families who settle in this town very rarely leave this town, which was something growing up I felt weird about.
