According To FBI Statistics, These Are The 10 Most Dangerous Cities In Washington For 2020

Statistically, Washington is a very safe place to call home (as well as the best place, in our opinion). But no matter what city or town you live in, you’ll certainly encounter crime now and then  — it happens everywhere, unfortunately. Recently, RoadSnacks compiled the most recent FBI data on property crime and violent crime and came up with a list of Washington’s most dangerous cities for 2020.

And while that particular author’s opinions of our state are laughable at best and painfully ignorant at worst (low wages? Not so much!), the FBI statistics are true. That being said, these cities are all still great places to live, so if you call one of them home, we wouldn’t worry. Wherever you reside, just lock your doors, be aware of your surroundings, and enjoy life in the amazing PNW.

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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:


It seems as if, on a whole, both violent crime and property crime rates are slowly but surely falling in the Evergreen State. And believe it or not, this is actually a safe place to be when it comes to natural disasters as well.
