20 Safest Large Cities in the World

The safest large cities in the world? A safe large city? Could such a thing even exist? Yes. Yes, it can and does! Some neighborhoods are known for pretty negative things. One of the most recorded stats for small and large cities is the crime rate. It’s how many murders and violent things happen from day to day. Now, those stats are important to know, but they’re not exactly something you want to hear about on a daily basis, right?

No, we want to hear something happy! You might think that heavily populated areas are just filled with crime, but that isn’t always the case. Some metropolises boast the fact that they have a pretty low crime rate compared to the rest of the world. Believe it or not, North America actually has some of the safest cities around!

We don’t want to toot our own horn, but we know what we’re talking about when it comes to safety The Economist made a list that’s going to help us break down exactly where you can go for a fun vacation or just a great place to move.

North America has the most with seven, but we can’t celebrate just yet! Asia follows closely behind with six, and Europe is on Asia’s coattail with five of the safest cities in the world. We also want to note that Australia is the sole representative from Oceania. Additionally, no South American cities made it into the top 20, which is a shame considering how beautiful the continent can be!
