Any near you? I am surprised none from Baltimore City are on here. I grew up RIGHT outside the city and some of them neighborhoods are so scary, people won't even walk in them. They have more deaths in a year then there are days!!

I live about an hr and a half from ATL.. scary...

  • LOL! I absolutely love going to Memphis. The town is actually a lot of fun. However, I don't usually stray too far from the main roads. I'm not really sure where those areas are located, but if you've ever read about the old Mall of Memphis, it talks a lot about the crime in that area. I also love Chicago. Yes, I've probably been through some of those areas.

  • Wow. We lived in LAs Vegas years ago because my DH was based at Nellis, but way far away from the "strip". It was an average suburb,family-oriented area.
    NOW I live in Minnesota and they didn't mention anything near our Twin Cities. I love it here!

  • I have lived near some of the most dangerous areas and some of the 'safest' areas (as ranked by other sources).... I'm not surprised by many of the cities on this list...
