The people in Danville are incredibly friendly and warm. I am currently in nursing school and do clinical rotations at the local hospital. The nursing staff has been incredibly helpful in my learning experience and the patients have been wonderful as well. More community based activities would be great!

Danville is a small town of 30,000 residents. I was born and raised here. There are definitely areas of the community that you should avoid. Unfortunately, our crime rate has risen in the last 50 years and our public school system is very poor. I think there is still potential for Danville, we just need some businesses that offer salary positions and not rely on hourly retail jobs.
For the most part Danville people are awesome! Danville is a caring community. Danville is close to the University of Illinois. And is accessible to Indianapolis and Chicago by Amtrak out of Champaign.
