Florida’s
50 Safest Cities

2019

Florida is an incredibly diverse state, with everything from beautiful beaches, amazing nightlife and Little Cuba to higher education, alligators, and don’t forget the Everglades! From Jacksonville to Boca Raton, the state isn’t only a great vacation destination— it’s also a great place to live, with all year-round sunny weather and tons of awesome places to raise a family. Want freshly-squeezed orange juice? Florida is the state for you!

So what are some things to do in Florida that you can’t afford to miss? A ton, but here’s a small sample:

  • Visit Key West: From key lime pie to Ernest Hemingway’s house to snorkeling on the reef, Key West is a great place for couples, singles and families alike.
  • Everglades: Get closer to alligators than ever on informative and interesting guided tours
  • Disney World: This one’s obvious. The nearly 25,000 acre property includes four theme parks, two water parks, several golf courses, one camping resort, plus 27 themed resort hotels.

Florida is the place to go, but you should probably do some research on its safest cities before you enter the Sunshine State. Calculated using crime statistics from the FBI, Florida’s safest city is Marco Island, which sits off the coast of Southwest Florida. Home to marinas, resorts and of course, beaches, the Island only has .61 violent crimes and 6.74 property crimes per 1,000 people.Other top picks include Satellite Beach, Palm Beach, and West Miami.

How Did We Determine the Safest Cities?

Of course, this isn’t just the safest cities according to personal opinion. Rather, we used the FBI’s 2017 and 2016 Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) data to choose our top picks, based on factors like:

  • Murder rate
  • Rape rate
  • Robbery Rate
  • Assault rate
  • Burglary rate
  • Theft rate
  • Vehicle theft rate
  • Arson rates
  • Median Income

For each city, we’ll provide the most important information that you need to know, such as the city’s population, violent and property crime rates and trends, median income, average household income, and an overall safety score and ranking. Plus, we’ll show you all the specific numbers for the above rates, in addition to larceny theft rates and the total number of civilians working in law offices.
