Town 15 Miles from Rochester is the Second Safest and Most Peaceful Town in Minnesota
There are two towns in southeast Minnesota that have been named some of the safest and most peaceful towns in the entire state. One of those towns, which happens to take the number two spot, is just 15 miles from Rochester
Despite being a place where Jesse James and his gang attempted to rob from, Northfield is the 11th safest and most peaceful town in Minnesota. I haven't spent a ton of time in Northfield but when I have been there I never noticed anything off and never felt in danger, so I guess that's a testament that this ranking was correct.
And the number 2 spot, the 2nd safest and most peaceful town in Minnesota is Kasson, just 15 miles from Rochester! So if you work in the Rochester area, maybe consider moving to Kasson if you're looking for a quiet and safe place to live.
