50 Safest Cities
Not only was Arkansas the first place where diamonds were discovered in 1906, but it’s also the only state in the U.S with an active diamond mine where you can actually mine for your own diamonds. Another first is Walmart, which opened its first state in Rogers in 1962. Just don’t pronounce it Ar-Kansas, as this is literally illegal in the state.
So, what are some things that you don’t want to miss if you’re going to Arkansas? Off the top of my head…
- Take a dip in Hot Springs National Park
- View art from Normal Rockwell, Andy Warhol, and others in the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville
- Mine for diamonds in the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro
- Head over to the Little Rock Zoo, which has over 725 animals from over 200 species on a 33 acre campus.
Speaking of legalities, if you’re planning on going to Arkansas then you should probably know about its safest cities. Number one is Greenbrier, with a population just short of 5,500 and only .36 violent crimes per 1,000. Arkansas’ cities also made the list including North Little Rock at #47, Jonesboro at #44, and Conway at #41.
This statistic shows the number of violent crimes per 1,000 people in the past year. Violent crimes include forcible rape, robbery, aggravated assault, murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, as defined by the FBI.
This statistic shows how many police officers there are per 1,000 of the city’s inhabitants. Across the United States, there was an average of 2.4 sworn officers per 1,000 inhabitants as of 2011, reports the FBI.
