Danville, Kentucky is one of the most unique places I have ever lived! Being a part of a military family, I have lived in many different locations, but Danville has been the only place that feels like home to me. There are so many interesting historical landmarks, cute shops, and outdoor places to enjoy time with family and friends. One of my favorite things about Danville is it's coffee shop downtown, the hub. The Hub is a great place to do homework and catch up with friends!

Danville is a really great small town area with lots of small cafes to dine at. I will say that there is not much to do, however. The public schools here are some of the best in the state, and as a student who currently attends a public high school in this area, I can surely say that the schooling here is great. The people in this area like to stay in their own bubbles, but they're still friendly and willing to help whenever. There isn't much of a nightlife here in town, as most places close around 10 pm, and there also isn't much diversity or job opportunities besides fast food.
Danville is a friendly town to live in. I have grown up and now raise my children there. There isn’t a lot to do for fun, you have to drive to Lexington usually. Although the shopping areas are getting better. The city government needs major changes. The city is horrible at maintaining ing road conditions.
