Here Are The 12 Most Dangerous Places In Florida After Dark

When you think of Florida, you probably think of beautiful beaches and family attractions, but just like every other place, the Sunshine State has its fair share of crime. We looked at NeighborhoodScout’s 2016 list of the 100 most dangerous cities in the U.S., and Florida had 12 cities make the list. (That’s a lot.)

To make the list, researchers dug through data reported to the FBI from more than 18,000 relevant reporting agencies on cities in the U.S. with at least 25,000 people. Keep in mind that they did not just compare the number of crimes. They factored in the size of the city as well, to give potential visitors an idea of the actual likelihood of becoming a victim of a violent crime.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
