June is National Safety Month and according to a new study done by Wallethub, Minnesota is one of the top 5 safest states in America!

Here is how the top 5 lay out:

  1. Vermont
  2. Maine
  3. Massachusetts
  4. Minnesota
  5. New Hampshire

We are the only state in the top 5 that isn't on the east coast! The study found that we ranked #3 overall for fewest road fatalities, have one of the least populations lacking health insurance, and are one of the highest populations of adults who have "rainy day" funds.

It is studies like these that make me proud to be born and raised in Minnesota! Read more on Wallethub's study on safe states here!
