Here Are The 15 Safest And Most Peaceful Places To Live In Minnesota

With most media coverage focused on the big cities, we wanted to learn more about the smaller towns and cities in Minnesota, and take some time to acknowledge the places in MN that are consistently getting it right when it comes to public safety. Whether you’re considering a move or want another reason to be proud of your hometown, it never hurts to know the safest places in any state. We checked out this past year’s information on the Safest Towns in Minnesota on Niche.com and reviewed the FBI Uniform Crime Reports as well. So without further ado, here are MN’s safest places to live.

Runner ups included Little Falls, Lake City, Hutchinson, New Prague, Albert Lea, Marshall, Fairmont, Eagan, Buffalo, and Big Lake. To see where your town scored, see the entire list here, and see your town’s count of individual crime types here.

With towns scoring 4th (Hibbing) and 17th (Kasson) overall in the entire nation, Minnesota definitely is a wonderful place to make your home. We should all be proud to live in a state where every small town works tirelessly to promote this great level of safety.
