If you’re beginning to think there isn’t a safe place to live in Illinois.

Think again.

10 Illinois towns recently made the 100 Safest Cities in America list.

Five of those towns are in the top 20 and they are between an hour to 90 mins Northwest of Rockford,

Wow! That’s actually cool and encouraging at the same time. Our state really needs some good news.

According to WGNTheNational Council for Home Safety and Security listed the following towns as places that were safe to live in based on “FBI Uniform Crime Report statistics.”

Wheaton came in at number 6.

Arlington Heights #15

Hoffman Estates #16

Palatine #17

Mount Prospect #20

Des Plaines #35

Naperville #41

Tinely Park #46

Oaklawn #79

Bolingbrook #86

Well it’s nice to know that Illinois still has good left in it. It’s just buried under the dark cloud of debt. Eventually we’ll come out on the other side.

For now it’s great to know we’ve got some good places to live in here in this state.
