I live in Danville it's really not as bad as he says.

The only nice thing I can say about danville is that the cost of living is fairly low since it's not a major city like Richmond. Besides that, I would strongly discourage moving to danville. It's not as worse as Hurt or Gretna. I can only recommend danville if you want to retire or raise a family. Don't expect to find opportunity there.

Such a shame about Danville. I lived there in the 1960s, it wasn't scary then at all.

The mills shut down, the town is slowly dying.

I have lived in Danville, VA my entire 33+ years of life. Yes it's home to me, but it's not where I want to spend the rest of my life & this is why. I would not recommend moving here unless you plan on retiring. There are no good paying jobs here unless you happen to get a job at one of the few factory's they have left. All they have are shopping & food places so restaurant, fast food, retail & banks are almost your only job options. When you compare the income of minimum wage to the cost of living & necessities like food & gas, good luck being to make it happily on your own without assistance.

There's nothing to do around here because people don't know how to act. The crime rate, murders, assault, robberies & shootings are horrible. Places have had to move their closing time earlier because of shootings & crime after hours. This is why I am currently looking to relocate away from Danville, VA...
