Published on October 21st, 2016

It’s almost that time of year where people decorate their homes to invite people in and kids put on their favorite Halloween costumes to scare people away! Have you ever wondered where some of the best cities are for trick-or-treating? Here is a list of cities that will give you the most candy, all while staying safe.

1. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

According to Zillow, the city of brotherly love is number one for trick-or-treating based on home values, local crime rates and the age of residents. The top neighborhoods in the Philly area to take your kids are: Cobbs Creek, Frankford, Logan, East Germantown and Fairmount.

2. San Jose, California

San Jose is great for trick-or-treating because of its nearly-perfect weather and scenic areas to enjoy while walking through the neighborhoods.  The three neighborhoods to check out in the San Jose area to score the most candy are: Cambrian Park, Rose Garden and Willow Glen.

3. San Francisco, California

The San Fran area offers many different options for both the kids and the “big kids” that still like to take part in the Halloween festivities. Belvedere Street is just a big street party! The street is closed off to the traffic and all of the houses and garages are decked out in every Halloween decoration you can imagine. The majority of the crowd is under 10, so it is very family friendly. Two other San Francisco areas to check out during Halloween are: Noe Valley and Fair Oaks Street.

4. Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Some of the best neighborhoods in Milwaukee to score the most candy are: Golden Valley, Polonia and Honey Creek Manor. Many of the neighborhoods in the Milwaukee area are very safe for your children, which is always important. If your neighborhood didn’t make the cut, take the short drive to one of these neighborhoods.  You won’t let your kids down! Just check out how much candy you get after the night is done.

5. Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles has some of the best spots to take your children for trick-or-treating. Take a nice walk through the streets of Brentwood or try something different and go trick-or-treating on Venice Beach! Are you into historical sights? Angelino Heights would be the place to take your kids for Halloween. The streets are lined with vintage houses that set the perfect tone for a spooky Halloween.
