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.

I love Danvers because it is close to everything and it's right next to the highway! My neighborhood is very nice, I am right on the water and steps away from the park for my daughter and a trail so I can go hiking. Downtown Danvers is right down the street and it is only a 5 minute drive to liberty tree mall! I wouldn't want to live anywhere else! I am very happy here.
Danvers is an amazing town located just far enough away from the city, but close enough for easy access to popular tourist sights. Many highways run through the town making it easy to get in and out of surrounding areas. It's small enough to get around with ease but not too small so that everyone knows your name. Unlike Peabody and Salem, there's plenty of grass and walking trails to give you that connection with nature.
