According To FBI Statistics, These Are The 10 Most Dangerous Cities In North Carolina For 2020
Uh oh, North Carolina. It seems another online publisher is throwing down some smack regarding where to find the most dangerous cities in the Tar Heel State. According to RoadSnacks, their information for creating the list of the ten worst cities is based upon the most recent FBI statistics available (which are from 2018) for NC cities with a population over 5,000. It’s hard to deny what facts and figures say, but we’re not in total agreement with the way things shake out on their list (see below). Are you? To get the bigger picture, we looked up the actual FBI statistics, and here’s what we found to be reported for each locale on the targeted list:
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!

Did your city make the list, or do you think your city should replace one of the cities on the list? We’d love to know your opinion, so feel free to join the conversation.
