9) Washington

Just ten miles east of East Peoria (also on our list), is Washington. New homeowners will feel right at home in this cozy community of 16,000. Washington is the safest town on our list and a great place to raise a family.  The crime rate is 60% below the state average, and 67% below the national average. More specifically, the violent crime rate is even more impressive at 88% below the nation’s average. Families with children can choose between public or private schools, and while the test scores in Washington are lower than the national average, they are higher than the Illinois average. There’s not much in the way of nightlife here, but there are options for entertainment. This town has a bowling alley, movie theater, spa and wellness centers, as well as family fun centers. The median family income is $72,000, the second highest on the list.[adrotate group=”3″]
