Recent Report Reveals Safest Cities In The U.S. In 2023

Recent Report Reveals Safest Cities In The U.S. 2023

MoneyGeek, a personal finance technology firm, has released a list of the safest metropolitan cities in America with populations greater than 300,000 for the third year in a row. Honolulu was named the safest large city in the country this year, with the lowest per-capita crime rate in the country.

“Hawaii in general is extremely safe relative to other states with major metro areas,” says Milnes. “A number of factors can lead to any city being safe or dangerous, and while we didn’t look into the exact hows or whys of each city’s situation, Honolulu may be uniquely positioned due to its isolation from other major cities, and is among states with the strictest gun laws in the nation.”

Another advantage Honolulu has in common with the other safest cities is a high cost of living and a good standard of living. “Cities that have higher costs and standards of living tend to also have lower levels of violent crime,” says Milnes. “Overall what we’re seeing is that the cities that have both a higher cost of living and a more suburban feel than our major metro areas tend to be safer. This is likely to be even more true for specific neighborhoods or sections of cities.”

MoneyGeek’s survey also lists the safest American cities with more than 100,000 residents. The safest city in this ranking was Naperville, Illinois. The total cost of crime in this city is $156 per capita. In second place is Sunnyvale, California, followed by West Covina, California. Six California localities make the safest cities list, with three of the cities with more than 300,000 residents in California.
