New Hampshire is a great place to live! We have it all. The Ocean, Mount Washington, Lake Winnipesaukee, Story Land, America’s First Library and much more! What about taxes? Who needs it! It is a great place to raise a family. Of course, when you are planning to relocate anywhere you would ideally like to buy / rent property in a safe city with low crime rate. I was surprised to see ZERO New Hampshire towns on a list published by safewise.com of the 100 Safest Cities in 2021. However, our neighbors to the south, Massachusetts, had 17 cities on the list! Massachusetts even cultivated the top two spots with Hopkinton at # 1 and Franklin at # 2.
So what data has safewise.com gathered to create this list? GREAT QUESTION! According to the article, they analyzed statistics from FBI criminal reports. They estimated the number of violent crimes as well as property crimes that were committed in each city during the year. Of course, crime rates went down during the pandemic because no one left his home! I guess it’s hard to rob someone’s house when there’s always someone in it! Localities with less than 2,500 inhabitants have been excluded from the list because they are considered rural.
Even though New Hampshire didn’t make the top 100, safewise.com still ranked our 10 safest cities for 2021 and here they are:
