Safe Small Towns

What makes a location safe? Job opportunities, natural features, and self-promotion can play a huge part. We are probably all concerned about the crime rates where we live, whether it’s a small town or a big city. And if we’re talking about the US, there are many cities with a high risk of violent attacks. According to the latest statistics by the FBI, violent crime in our country went up last year.

These diverse small towns and cities have done an excellent job controlling their criminal element, allowing their residents to leave their belongings in their cars without worry and be able to walk alone at night.

    1. These are not small town I live in a small town which is less than 20 thousand not 100 thousand or more

    1. How can any place in California be safe to live in?! The whole west coast is beautiful and used to be safe with plenty of fun things to do. Now that the Democrats have taken over, run as fast as you can from the west coast.

    I would add to your list of small towns which a safe and charming, the place where i now live, Monongahela, Pa. It’s in western Pennsylvania about 27 miles from Pittsburgh. It is a lovely old town over 150 years old with wonderful homes and buildings. Mny of the families and businesses have been her for generations. It has a wonderful business district with fine shops and restaurants with places within walking distance. It has a good economy and an affordable cost of living. There is little crime here because we have a fine police department, fire department, paramedics and a fine local hospital. The buildings are well kept up and there is no slums or grafitti. People are friendly and say hello on the streets. There are other fine communities like this in the easteren and midwestern United States that should be included.

    1. I love this. I do not live far from here…and only have passed thru or passed by… never stopped… will definitely take a better look!!! Thanks!!

  2. Fascinating that nothing is mentioned about the cost of living in any of these towns; any place is CA is cost-prohibitive and the same is true for anything in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Doesn’t matter how safe it is if you can’t afford to live there. Just sayin’.

  3. So you’re telling me that there are no cute affordable quaint little town in the Upper Midwest? I’m not a believer of these town!

  4. I live in a small town of only 2072 and everyone is friendly it’s like living in Mayberry. The town is EUREKA SPRINGS ARKANSAS, built in the 1800’s,it’s old school and no MLK street in my town. This is the place I picked to die in since I’ve been retired, 2018 people are so nice, lazy but nice.
