Review Duluth
Duluth, MN is a great place to make your new home for the next few years! It is perfect for those who are coming from a small town and want to ease their way into city life - or for those who need a break from crazy traffic and people everywhere. Duluth offers plenty of outdoor activities, and has an abundance of hiking trails and beautiful sites, such as lake superior, Enger tower, and Bentley Ville. This hometown of legendary singer Bob Dylan has a very hipster college town feel. Duluth offers a wide array of unique coffee shops, restaurants, eclectic boutiques, and much more. Duluth was even listed as one of the top best places to live in the U.S. a couple years back! Definitely look into it if you're looking for the perfect college town!
Duluth is the 3rd largest city in the state of Minnesota. There is crime here and much of the crime is concentrated in the downtown area. As far as prevalence of crime per capita, Duluth is average. This city does not rank in the top cities of Minnesota with highest crime rates. Police visibility here is quite well. They have two different police divisions in each side of the city as well as a mounted patrol division that works in Canal Park and downtown area. Mounted patrol has very good public relations with the people here as the kids and everyone loves the horses and the officers interact positively with people. I feel quite safe in this city!
