What Bert Has To Say About Danville Metro Area

Danville is a quiet, unremarkable, and economically challenged Midwestern community about 35 miles east of Champaign-Urbana along I-74. The economy, once tied to coal and clay mining and agriculture, has diversified into many areas of manufacturing but is still bleak with high unemployment and low growth projections. There isn’t much to do; however, the college towns of Champaign-Urbana west and West Lafayette, IN (Purdue University) 50 miles east provide some amenities. Chicago is a fairly long and not a direct haul of 170 miles.
