I know it's not Halloween but witches are all around us. Wichcraft is more mainstream then I thought. Michigan is home to one of the worst cities for witches.

We grew up with the same understanding of what a witch might be. We learned about them on TV shows, cartoons and in folklore. Dictionary gives the defitnition of witch as:

noun. a person, now especially a woman, who professes or is supposed to practice magic or sorcery; a sorceress. Compare warlock. a woman who is supposed to have evil or wicked magical powers: witches in black robes and pointed hats.

That's the stereotypical definition of "witch". I know a couple of witches in the Lansing area and they don't where a pointy hat, ride a broomstick nor do they wear black robes. You'll find the witches I know wearing jeans, a sweatshirt, and perhaps a pair of "Chucks" on their feet.


I wanted to know where the best cities in the U.S. are for "witches". Michigan has a lot of haunted places but how does it fare when it comes to being a good place for "witches". As it turns out, Michigan is home to the "worst" city for "witches" in the U.S. Lawn Love had time to do some research and the results are interesting. They did a survey with the following criteria:

We compared the 200 biggest U.S. cities based on access to covens, tarot readers, and astrology classes. We also looked for cities brimming with natural healers, herbalists, and metaphysical supply stores, among 18 total metrics.


The Top 5 best cities for witches are:

1. New York, NY

2. Los Angeles, CA

3. Houston, TX

4. Chicago, IL

5. Las Vegas, NV

If you're a "witch" and are trying to find a city that's best for you, perhaps one of the cities above could be home.

Now that we know what the top 5 best cities for witches are, it's time to share the worst cities for witches, based on the survey info that was collected. Michigan is tied for the "worst" city for witches in America.
