Texas Has 5 Of The ‘Top 10 Safest Cities’ In America
Honestly, with all the talk of violence and crime and murder all the time it never crossed my mind that my state, the Great State of Texas, actually has 5 of the 10 safest towns in the United States.
Seriously, between all the bad news, political, Chinese spy balloons, UFO's, war, earthquakes, floods, Hunter's laptop, and another edition of "what on earth did he just say"... I'm ready for a little good news today. When I saw this new research study for 2023 this morning, I just had to let everyone know about it.
Did You Know...
The Great State of Texas has 5 of the Top 10 Safest Cities in America, according to new research for 2023 published by SmartAsset.com. And 3 of the 5 are located just north of Dallas, the other two are both Texas/Mexico border towns. Who would have thought that with the craziness on our southern border the last two years? So, if you are planning a move to Texas anytime soon, or relocating around the state, maybe these are the places you want to head toward.
