The Worst Cities in America, Ranked

St. Louis, Missouri

Sadly, St. Louis, Missouri, has earned a reputation as one of America’s least appealing tourist destinations. The chance of being a victim of a crime is 1 in 53, and the probability of being a victim of property crime is 1 in 10.

For its size, the city comes close to matching Detroit in terms of violent crime. It is primarily due to a deteriorating economy resulting in many long-term inhabitants departing St. Louis in search of a better life. St. Louis, based on statistics and crime rates, is not a safe city to visit.

According to a CBS analysis from November 2020, St. Louis is the second most dangerous city in America to live in. However, much renovation is taking place in the hopes of luring new investors and families.
