Not in the zones all near you, no. If you ventured out far enough at low level, you could run into (admittedly low level versions) of Deathclaws or Super Mutants, which generally tended to make your life fairly miserable.

New Vegas basically didn't scale. It just put bad shit in out of the way areas, and if you were foolish enough to walk there, a Ghoul Reaver would come and show you why little peons like you should stick to the main road.

The only places I can think of that were dangerous for a low level character in Fallout 3 were the deathclaw infested Old Olney and the scripted super mutant behemoth encounter west of the Jury Street Metro. FO3 seemed weird that fresh out of the vault you could wander around at level 2 and only run into molerats and bloatflies, but when you level up and wander the same areas you start seeing yao guai, deathclaws and giant radscorpions.

I prefer the way New Vegas does it over Fallout 3 where certain level creatures populate certain areas, so trying to venture to certain places early on is asking for death.
