New Rankings: Appleton One of America's Safest Cities

A new study published by Morgan Quitno Press rates the Appleton area as one of the nation's safest metropolitan areas, ranking #5. Interestingly, six of the top twelve metropolitan areas are in Wisconsin, with Find du Lac listed as #1. They also ranked individual cities rather than metropolitan areas, leading to different results with less emphasis on Wisconsin. I'll stick with the metro approach since it favors my neck of the woods.

Though the results can be debated, there is no question that the Fox Valley is a remarkably safe area. It's a great place to live and to raise a family. Violent crime is surprisingly low.

We still have openings, but they may not last forever, so move here while you can!
