Setting & Lifestyle
It is a fairly quiet town because there are relatively few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. (Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Denmark has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Denmark has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Denmark than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here. If you think trees make good neighbors, Denmark may be for you.
Denmark is very much a car-oriented town. This is because the population of Denmark isn't large enough or dense enough to support an extensive public transit system. It has a lot of rural roads, and the distance between houses can be quite large, which together tends to discourage walking and bicycling to work. 97.48% of residents commute to work in their own car (and the drive is typically to a job out of town). People also tend to drive out of town for other services as well, such as shopping, doctors appointments, and more.
Being a small town, Denmark does not have a public transit system used by locals to get to and from work.
