Safety: Surprise’s total crime rate is 35% below the national average and 60% lower than the US violent crime average.

Festivals and events: Gather around for music, food, and fun at community events throughout the year like the Second Sundays, the Food Truck Festival, the Fine Art & Wine Festival, and the Surprise Party.
