And just to end the suspense early, Lehigh Acres did NOT make the list of the most dangerous places in Florida. When I do “Highest Concentration Of Dollar Stores In The World”, that’ll be Lehigh. Actually there’ll all a dollar 25 now. Inflation hittin’ Lehigh. I had to come up with an extra 25 cents to buy my oatmeal scented hand soap. Love that stuff.

Ok, I’m trailing off,  there are plenty of other places to go if you’re in the mood to cheat death. There’s more than just 8 Dangerous Places In Florida. I just had to sum it up so this article didn’t go on forever. I even suggested earlier this week you do some urban exploration at an old military base that once housed nuclear missiles. The truth is, this is Florida, there’s danger everywhere. From the swamps where everything is looking to kill/eat you. To the cities where they rob tourists for sport. And the ‘burbs where Florida man is sure to make an appearance if you hang around long enough. Florida Man scares me more than any of the places on the list because he’s so random. And it’s not just Florida Man anymore. Florida Woman been stepping up her  game. Anyway you look at it, there’s a lot of danger in the sunshine state. Thanks to Onlyinyourstate, here’s a list of the top 8 ways to die in Florida.


  • 1. Mangonia Park

    Pack more than just a picnic lunch, you have a 1 in 24 chance of being a victim of violent crime in Mangonia Park. Good luck.


  • 2. I-95 In Jacksonville

    Buckle up, this stretch of highway has the highest fatality rate in the country. In one year there was 573 injuries and 25 fatalities.

  • 3. Fuller Warren Bridge

    Want to be more specific? Take the Fuller Warren Bridge on I95 in Jacksonville. It averages almost an accident a day.

  • 4. Your Southwest Florida Backyard

    Ok, so Lehigh sorta made the list. If you hang out in your backyard you know that mosquitoes down here aren’t just a nuisance. They’re here to kill.

  • 5. Everglades National Park

    It’s not just the giant snakes and the alligators. It’s not uncommon for people to get lost, fall, or just straight up drown.

  • 6. Vista del Lago Blvd And Route 192

    In Kissimmee. It made Time Magazine’s most dangerous intersection list. Actually, quite a few Florida intersections made that list. Check it out.

    We got a break from hurricanes in 2021. Think we’ll get lucky two years in a row. Ha.

    KEY WEST, FL – SEPTEMBER 16: A man looks out at the ocean from The Southernmost Point marker in Key West on September 16, 2017 in Key West, Florida. Many places in the Keys still lack water, electricity or mobile phone service and residents are still not permitted to go further south than Islamorada. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has reported that 25-percent of all homes in the Florida Keys were destroyed and 65-percent sustained major damage when they took a direct hit from Hurricane Irma.
