What are some dangerous towns in Georgia? 

Georgia is a beautiful state, but it’s not without its share of shady towns and cities that you might want to avoid (or simply avoid after dark). Some of the most dangerous towns in Georgia as of 2021 include College Park, which ranks as #1 thanks to its property crime rates are three times the national average, and Americus, which ranks as #2 thanks to its larceny and property crime rates. Other dangerous towns include Forest Park (which sees a crime rate 108% higher than the national average) and Douglasville (with a crime rate 156% higher than the national average). Bainbridge and Clarkston make the list, too! For more information about each of these and a few others, check out this list of the ten most dangerous towns in Georgia as of 2021. 

What are some scary natural dangers in Georgia?  

Georgia is a naturally beautiful state, but unfortunately, it’s also home to some scary natural dangers you ought to be wary of. For example, some of our wildlife can be quite dangerous; among Georgia’s most hazardous residents of the animal kingdom are critters like various snake species (Timber rattlesnake, Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake, etc), spider species (the black widow calls this place home), and stinging insects (bees, wasps, hornets). You’ll also want to be wary of other critters like wild turkeys, bears, bobcats, and coyotes. Practice safety no matter where you go, be it in the big city or out in the sticks – you never know what (or who) you might encounter! Deer pose a threat to, primarily, motorists, as striking a deer can result in an accident severe enough to maim or kill a person. The weather is also a risky detail, as sometimes hurricanes and tornadoes (including very nasty ones) strike the state. Flooding is another potential natural danger.
