Apartment Advisor: Top 19 Cities for Safe Solo Living
Living alone in an apartment or home can be freeing, frightening, and a fun way to experience life. Getting to know yourself better, grocery shopping and cooking for one, and nobody else to blame for the dirty dishes. If you ever have the chance, and desire, to do so it can be a great way to challenge yourself and stay far away from any roommate drama.
Safety is also an important issue when living alone. You want to feel safe from property crime and of course, violent crime when walking down the street in your city or even just hanging out in your living room. Those who live alone can be especially vulnerable to attacks – so choosing a safe, clean city with low crime rates can be paramount.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the safest cities and towns in the US for solo apartment living. This list was created using population and crime statistics for the area, as well as inspiration from awards given by other publications.
