    Meh....Who'd want to live there? WV is number 12. And within 3 hours of several large cities if'n you get bored. And lots warmer then NH,ME, or VT. :-)

    So I guess most of New England is pretty safe. Good to know if I ever move back up north!

    Appleton, WI is very safe. It is a small city of 77,000, but is big into parties and the dominate religion is worship of the Green Bay Packers. In 2004, Appleton was honored for being in the top 10 most secure cities in the United States. It maintains an edcuational system that is rated top in the nation. The small town has 5 big high schools (3 public and 2 parochial and numerous colleges and institutions of higher learning.)

    One of the interesting things about Appleton and many Wisconsin towns is the large number of bars in the area. It is in the top 10 of the nation for bars per capita.. Yes, Wisconsin has plenty of beer and other drinks, but Appletonians seem to be remarkably sober and responsible, in my opinion. And I've found people to be kind and understanding of those who don't drink. Visitors looking for a place to get a few drinks will have no trouble, with many popular choices.

    Smoking is a different story here. Appleton has a strict no-smoking law that bans smoking in workplaces, including restaurants and bars. This new law is the bane of many bar and restaurant owners, who say that it drives business to surrounding towns that don't have the ban, though I think that early pain has declined - and non-smokers from other towns may be increasingly coming to Appleton (where we honestly have a surprisingly great mix of good restaurants). The smoking ordinance is a controversial law that passed by referendum in 2005. Personally, I don't smoke and appreciate the fresh air of Appleton, but I voted against the ban out of a philosophical concern for private property rights. If your dream is to puff away your life in a bar, Appleton might not be the ideal place for now - but there's always nearby Menasha or Neenah.

    This gem of the Midwest really rocks! It's truly one of the best places to live in the world.

    NEW HAMPSHIRE!!!


    I can certainly understand why the state of New Hampshire was voted #1! I will never forget the time I was involved in a car accident in Littleton, N.H! the officer who pulled me out of the car immediately gave me medical attention and even took me to his doctor that same evening, then the following morning I was taken to stay at a beautiful Bed & Breakfast for three nights with the first night free!! I forgot the name of the establishment, but everyone in town were very concerned and quite attentive with me! I can personally attest as to why the state of New Hampshire is the number one on the list of the safest states! the law enforcement there is very well trained in dealing with the unexpected!!

    Nevada! So proud.



    I guess being the most awesome state, makes sense its the most dangerous.

    I'll take most dangerous over safest any day. To me.....Safe=boring.




    edit....we aren't even in the top 5 for murder, rape or assault....which is good.

    And really the theft in Vegas makes us score that way....Reno isn't even close to as bad.
