Tired of crime? Yearning to live in an ultrasafe city? Well, it may be time to pull up roots and move to New England, my friends.
Nashua, NH, was named the safest city in America by personal finance website WalletHub. This city on the New Hampshire–Massachusetts border, about an hour north of Boston, earned high marks for having next to no violent crimes and thefts.
It also has low unemployment and poverty rates.
The personal finance website looked at 35 criteria in more than 180 cities to come up with the list. Those criteria included home and community safety statistics (e.g., terrorist attacks, other crimes, fatalities); natural disaster risk; and measures of financial safety (e.g., unemployment rate, poverty rate, and median credit score).
