Irvine is once again making its home among top-rated U.S. cities. This time in a 2017 ranking, Niche, a company that researches and collects reviews on cities, has named Irvine the nation’s second safest city. Irvine has the nation's lowest per capita violent crime rate among 221 cities with at least 100,000 population.

The Niche ranking is independent of Irvine’s top spot on the FBI’s safest U.S. big cities list, a position the master-planned community has held for 13 consecutive years.

Irvine also consistently ranks high on other Niche categories including:

4th Best City for Outdoor Activities in America    

8th Best City to Raise a Family in America    

Best Place to Raise a Family in Orange County

Best Place to Live in Orange County
