I love my small community. I love it because I have always lived it. We truly have a quaint and special "village" here in South Carolina. It's a great place to raise children. It's a great place to take an evening stroll. It's a great place to grab an ice cream cone with a friend. Every geographical area is truly what you make it. Perspective is reality. Make your reality by taking small steps to improve your own community. I see a great place to live when I see Denmark!!

I believe Denmark needs a makeover. Add some attractions to the city like a plaza or better shopping centers. I believe this and updating the school in Denmark(Voorhees College and Denmark Technical College) will bring more people to the city.
They need more stores and food choices. Overall the place is a nice town if you want peace and quiet. The residents are cool, and there are two colleges nearby.
