Where is a safe big city in michigan?

I like in a little town and i want to experience that big city living without walking on the street to get into my care and getting shot. I was thinking detroit but i can't find anything online and EVERYONE is telling me that there aren't any safe places, even the suburbans where all the richies live. I could stay in lowell by grand rapids with my aunt and uncle, but are there any other places that are safe but big?

  • Good luck with that! STAY AWAY FROM DETROIT! Most of Michigan is pretty trashy IMO.

  • btw, what do all the abbr. stand for, i figured out SO (significant other) but all these "terms" are still confusing

  • DD= dear daughter
    DS=dear son
    DH=dear husband
    IMO=in my opinion

    Lol it takes a little bit, but you'll catch on. I felt so lost when I first came on this site! (sometimes I still do b/c ppl seem to be coming up with more and more abbreviations lol)

  • lol, it's funny cuz after i re-read what you wrote, i figured out what IMO meant, but there's so many of them and i'd feel dumb to ask them what that means, so i was hopeing that there might be a page filled with all the abb. so i can translate :P

  • I live just outside of Detroit and it's not as bad as everyone thinks. If I was you, I would go to Hart Plaza and the Ren Cen. It's wonderful. The river walk has things for kids to do and it's beautiful to see the Detroit River.

    I wouldn't go in some parts of Detroit or any city for that matter at night but I don't think any city can ever say they don't have a bad side of town.

  • I have been Downtown Detroit a lot lately on Movie sets- Lots of security though. try Ann Arbor for a lot of Pedestrian traffic and Chicago is really nice too! I have not been to Grand rapids. I think Lansing could be safe too- It depends on what you are looking for. I live in Michigan.

  • Stay away from Detroit!
    Stay away from Flint, though that's a small town.
    Stay away from Lansing.
