THIS IS NOT THE BEST PART TO VISIT OR VACATION IN TEXAS

There are some parts of Texas that could leave a tourist a little unsettled and worrisome. Being one of the largest states in the US, of course, there are so many interesting things that you can get yourself into here, but there are some things you most definitely want to avoid when coming to Texas.

According to TRAVEL SAFE - ABROAD, Bellmead might not be the ideal vacation spot when coming to Texas.

This small city located outside of Waco is the number one most dangerous city in Texas and is also known as one of the most dangerous cities in the United States. The violent crime rate of 1294 per hundred thousand residents and 6198 property crimes per 100,000 people alone might give you an idea why I wouldn’t suggest vacationing there.

If the crime rate is something you can avoid, the attractions alone in Bellmead are not all that attractive. There are no theme parks, large museums, or a lot of events in the city of Bellmead. Keep in mind it is a very small town so again there’s not a lot to do in small towns usually.

There are some places where you can check out antiques and pottery, but I don’t see that being something enjoyable for a family more of a hobby of someone who is interested in those particular things. Don’t get me wrong, I love the great state of Texas but I can admit that there are some places when it comes to vacationing or even visiting that I would want to avoid and unfortunately Bellmead takes the number one spot.
