4 Michigan Cities Ranked in the ‘Top 20 Dangerous’ in the U.S.
Who doesn’t love some “Pure Michigan” fun? If you’re planning some summer travel plans, I personally think Michigan is a great place. Whether you’re a local or from another state, or country, Michigan offers plenty of beautiful areas to enjoy in the summer months. One new study, though, highlights dangerous Michigan cities.
That said, the travel outlet TravelingLifestyle.net has posted a story naming the most dangerous cities in the U.S. “Crime has been on the rise in the United States during the past few years, and many people are concerned that the towns in which they live might no longer be safe,” they state in the study. “Fortunately, there are plenty of safe cities in the United States, but there are also some that are dangerous.” They add that their list features the cities with the highest crime rates in America.
Before we get to Michigan, let’s look at the most dangerous cities in America. Both are in Alabama. Mobile is No. 2; and Bessemer is actually No. 1. “As per neighborhoodscout’s analysis of dangerous cities in the United States, Bessemer has been identified as the most dangerous city in the U.S. in 2023,” TravelingLifestyle.net states. They do have an added note that they included in February, stating, “Bessemer mayor says police removed 300 guns from the streets in 2022.”
As for dangerous Michigan cities, Lansing comes in at No. 17; Kalamazoo is No. 12; Detroit is No. 6; and Saginaw is No. 4. According to their study, “the likelihood of being affected by violent or property crime in Saginaw is 1 in 24.” That’s huge. That said, I have some great friends in Saginaw and really enjoy the city. Find the full study and methodology here.
