Education is an important part of community life. Averett University offers 35 undergraduate degrees and three master’s degrees.

Outdoor activities can be enjoyed all year thanks to Danville’s mild, four-season climate. The Dan River, which runs through the city, is a beautiful natural resource for fishing and also offers many other recreation activities. Danville’s River Walk Trail boarders parts of the river where you can enjoy many miles of paved paths whether you are a walker, runner, biker or skater.  From this path, you can see scenic views of the Dan River, connect to woodland trails as well as other facilities.  Bordering the river is Dan Daniel Memorial Park, 170 acres of wetlands and woodlands. There are many lakes within easy driving distance for camping, fishing and boating, including Smith Mountain Lake, VA; Hyco Lake, NC and Buggs Island Lake in Clarksville, VA. The beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway is less than an hour away, and the beaches of North and South Carolina are within a four-hour drive.
