  1. Tallahassee
  2. Orlando
  3. Miami Gardens
  4. Jacksonville
  5. Daytona Beach

1. Tallahassee

Tallahassee may be the state capital, but it's also the most dangerous city in Florida—by far. With a violent crime rate of 16.27 per 1k residents (nearly triple the national average), it's no wonder Tallahassee topped this list. If you live in Tallahassee, your chances of being the victim of a violent crime are nearly one in 62—not great odds for such a small city (Tallahassee's population is just under 190k).

2. Orlando

Orlando's violent crime rate is 11.53 per 1,000 residents—the second-highest on this list. But what really sets Orlando apart is its property crime rate: 3,764 per 100k residents. This means that your chances of being the victim of property crime in Orlando are nearly one in 27—not great odds for such a large city (Orlando's population is just over 285k).

3. Miami Gardens

Miami Gardens' violent crime rate is alarming—12.92 per 1,000 residents. That's nearly double the rate of Daytona Beach and almost triple the national average. Couple that with a poverty rate of over 27%, and it's no wonder Miami Gardens made this list.

4. Jacksonville

Jacksonville is the most populous city on this list, with a population of over 920,000 people. It also has the highest property crime rate of any city on this list, with 3,427 incidents per 100,000 residents. This means that if you live in Jacksonville, your chances of being a victim of property crime are nearly one in 30—not great odds.

5. Daytona Beach

With a population of just over 61,000, Daytona Beach's violent crime rate is 10.78 per 1,000 residents. That means that for every 1,000 people living in Daytona Beach, there are nearly 11 incidents of violent crime. While that might not seem like a lot, it's important to remember that Daytona Beach is a relatively small city. When compared to other cities on this list, its violent crime rate is actually quite high.

Most Dangerous Cities in Florida

While Florida has much to offer its residents and visitors alike, it also has its fair share of dangers—especially if you're not careful about where you choose to live or visit. If you're planning on spending time in Florida, be sure to research which areas are safe and which ones to avoid. And if you're thinking about moving to Florida permanently? You might want to think twice before settling down in any of the cities on this list. Furthermore, please leave your thoughts and comments below.
