Boise is 6 Hours from One of the Safest Places You Can Live in America
One of the safest cities in all of the United States is less than 6 hours away from Boise, and that city is apparently Lone Peak, UT – so basically the Draper area in Utah.
The city is currently ranking #18 on the list of the safest cities in America according to Money Geek. And according to World Population Review, Utah and Idaho are among the safest states in the entire country.
What I found extremely surprising though, was the drastic difference in where these 2 states land on the list – Utah ranked #4 safest state in the country and Idaho ranked #19.
That’s a pretty big jump, and I don’t know if it’s just me, but I feel like Idaho and Utah are a lot alike in a lot of ways, and they should have somewhat similar stats. In my opinion...
But apparently Utah is way safer than Idaho? I don’t know if I can believe that. Salt Lake City seems more dangerous to me than Boise. Along with that, Money Geek created a list of the safest cities/towns in America, and Utah had some really high-ranking cities, but Idaho did not.
Lone Peak, UT ranked #18 safest city in America, and the highest-ranking Idaho city was Pocatello at #454.
I mean, it makes a little more sense for Pocatello to be further down the list, but what doesn’t make sense to me at all is that Pocatello came way before Lewiston (#534), Coeur d’Alene (#621), Idaho Falls (#678), and Twin Falls (#712).
Again, I feel like these cities are all safer than Pocatello. But after last week’s article about Pocatello being safer than Boise, I don’t know if I can trust any of these lists anymore – because clearly Pocatello is not safer than Boise.
