Here Are The 7 Most Dangerous Places In Delaware After Dark

Overall, Delaware is a pretty safe state, but there are definitely dangerous places in Delaware. You do need to be careful in some of our cities at night, or when the crowds finally head home. We all know that Wilmington is Murder City, USA, and that you really need to be careful in certain parts of the city, whether it’s dark or light out. And I’m sure you’ve been told to keep an eye out for pickpockets when you’re on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach – but did you know that property crime rate is pretty high in Camden, too? We used FBI Crime Data to compile this list – some of these places may surprise you! So read on, and keep your wits about you when you’re traveling after dark.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
