7 Safest Cities in America

- Advertisement -

When you are young, living in the big city and enjoying the fast life might have been perfectly fine, or even enjoyable.

However, now that you’re older and the ‘wild-child’ days have passed, that type of life isn’t always enjoyable. This is even truer once you have a family.

You want to know that your children will be able to go outside without worry, that they will get a good education with many future opportunities. You want your children to become productive young adults later in life.

Take a look at seven of the safest cities in America. If you want your children to grow up in the safest environments, consider a move to one of these great cities.

1. Sterling Heights, MI

As bad of a reputation as Detroit has earned, it is surprising to many that any Michigan City could be deemed as one of the safest. But, it is true, and Sterling Heights is proof. This small town, located only a short 25 miles from the big ‘D’ is fairly safe with low crime rates.

2. Sunnyvale, CA

Sunnyvale had a crime rate of just 97 crimes per 100,000 residents, which is lower than the national average as well as other cities in the state.

Sunnyvale had just 4 murders in 2013. Almost 60% of all adults in the city held a Bachelor’s degree or higher, with the cities average income $99,000 annually.

3. Amherst, NY

On the other side of the map we go to Amherst, NY to find the third safest city in the U.S. Only one murder occurred in the town of 118,000 people in 2013. There were only 90 crimes per 100,000 residents of the city. Amherst has maintained rankings in the safest cities in America for many years in a row.

4. Cary, N.C.

Cary, North Carolina had a 2013 crime rate of just 69 crimes per 100,000 people. The city has low poverty rates and well-educated residents who make an average annual income of about $89,504. Of the crimes committed in Cary, the most commonly committed is assault.

6. Gilbert, AZ

Gilbert is located a short distance southeast of Phoenix. The small town is home to a population of about 214,000 residents. Gilbert offers the benefits of big city living with the low crime rate of a small town. Theft is the most common crime committed in this city.

7. Chula Vista, CA

Chula Vista has a crime rate of about 242 crimes per 100,000 residents. The city has a population of 249,000 people, with an annual average income of about $68,607.

As a bonus, take a look at a couple of the most dangerous cities in America that you might want to avoid if you are a family with children.

1. Minneapolis

Minneapolis was once called Murderapolis because of its high murder rate. Although there has been improvement since the 1990s, the crime rate in the city remains more than three times higher than other U.S. cities.

2. Miami, FL

Miami is another city that is seeing a decline in crime rates, yet still remains on one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S. More than 430 crimes are committed per 100,000 residents of the city.

3. Memphis, TN

Home of barbecue and jazz music, Memphis, Tennessee is also well-known for its crime and dangerous environments.  There were almost 60,000 violent crimes committed in the city in 2010.
