Here Are The 8 Most Dangerous Places In Washington After Dark

Statistically, Washington is a very safe place to be. We’re ranked 31 of 50 for violent crime (which is great for a state of our size), and our overall crime rate is 2.8 per 1,000 residents, lower than the national average. But no place is perfect, and some of our cities are definitely more dangerous than others.

We’ve previously covered the list of the most dangerous towns in Washington, focusing on a combination of property crime, violent crime and other miscellaneous offenses. The cities on this list were ranked solely by violent crime rates (assault, rape, and murder) using FBI data from 2011-2015.

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:

Of course, statistics are just that – statistics. Take them as you will, and enjoy living in beautiful Washington. After all, it’s still the best state.
