Overall, the safest city in America is Fraklin, Massachusetts, but if you live in Wisconsin or Illinois, the chances of you packing up and moving to that spot are pretty slim.

Closer to home, there is a place that is considered nearly as safe as Franklin.

MSN via Mediafeed:

The safest cities in America tend to be suburban areas close to major cities like New York and Boston.

In order to get to this place, you'll have to get close to Milwaukee.

Checking in as the 8th safest city in America overall is Muskego, Wisconsin.

MSN via Mediafeed says "This cozy city sits within the orbit of Milwaukee and within the greater Chicago area."

Neatly seated by both two major cities should have big appeal for people with families who are able to commute to either metropolitan area for work.

The crime rate in Muskego is stunningly low, with the chances of a resident being a victim of crime at 1 in 279.

Apartments.com says "A strong sense of community pervades Muskego, with numerous events, programs, and activities bringing residents together on a regular basis."

Muskego sounds like the perfect town to put down roots, raise a family and most importantly keep them safe.

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
