What are the safest towns in Vermont?
You could go by the list above – or you could choose another source and compare. According to Safety.com, as of the time of this writing in October 2021, the safest places to live in Vermont are Barre (#1), Essex (#2), Swanton (#3), Montpelier (#4), and Stowe (#5). Overall, Vermont has actually been called the #1 safest state in the US by numerous sources based on several parameters. It’s a state that’s as beautiful as it is safe, and not a whole lot of states have that bragging right! The best part is that it’s not like these towns are huge, either, so you’ve got that small-town vibe along with the small-town safety. For example, East Barre had under 900 people living there as of the last census. Don’t count the larger towns and small cities out, though! Essex is home to approximately 21,000 people, making it the second-most populous city in the state.
