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.
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.
