Minneapolis-St. Paul Named America’s Safest Place to Live

You don't have to tell people who live in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul what a wonderful place this is to live…but it's always nice when it is affirmed by an outside source.

Forbes magazine recently examined 40 metropolitan areas and evaluated them based on four factors: workplace accidents, weather catastrophes, crime rates and traffic accidents.

They used the results to come up their list of America's Safest Cities…and the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area topped the list!


Here is their list of the top 10 safest metropolitan areas in the United States:

  1. Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, MN
  2. Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis, WI
  3. Portland-Vancouver-Beaverton, OR-WA
  4. Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, MA
  5. Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA
  6. Providence-New Bedford-Fall River, RI
  7. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, CA
  8. New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island, NY-NJ-PA
  9. Cincinnati-Middletown, OH (tie)
  10. Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor, OH / Denver-Aurora, CO
