If you're taking the kids out trick-or-treating tomorrow maybe you should consider taking them to Mankato!

Mankato was just ranked as the 2nd safest metro in the entire country for trick-or-treating, right behind Lincoln, NE. So how did Mankato earn this honor?

The study was done by Your Local Security and to determine which metros are the safest for trick-or-treating they looked at the number of pedestrian collision deaths, violent crimes, and sex offenders in the area. They used these three things to determine the top 10 safest metros for trick-or-treating out of 383 US metro areas.

Here is the list of the top 10 safest metros in the country:

1. Lincoln, NE

2. Mankato, MN

3. Provo-Orem, UT

4. Logan, UT

5. Idaho Falls, ID

6. Ogden-Clearfield, UT

7. Kennewick-Richland, WA

8. Washington-Arlighton-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV

9. Omaha-Council Bluffs, NE-IA

10. Grand Island, NE

Only one metro in the Midwest made the 10 least safe metros in the country: St. Louis. Most of the metros that are the least safe for trick-or-treating in the country are located in Florida.
