We all know that Texas is a beautiful place to live, there is tons of natural beauty found in the lone star state and there is always something to do. It’s a gigantic state that we live in so there is so much to do and explore but just like all parts of the country there are some negative things that happen here too, there is crime just like everywhere else. But recently the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released data outlining the 35 most dangerous cities in the U.S. and there were three Texas cities that made the list but probably not the ones that you would expect.

If you’re guessing that the biggest cities in the state of Texas were the three cities that made the list for most dangerous cities, you would be wrong. While one really big city was one of the three Texas cities to make the list, I was actually quite shocked to see which other two Texas cities made the list, I probably wouldn’t have guessed the other two cities had that much crime or drug use. Although again, drugs and crime happen in most communities across the country. 

How Did They Come Up With the Results? 

According to the article written by A Piece of Travel, the data that was looked at to come up with the list of dangerous cities include the number of violent and property crimes, also looking at the number of violent crimes per 1000 people of population. Basically, this means no matter where you are or what you’re doing you should always stay aware of your surroundings.
