Halloween is here, and kids around the U.S. are eager to fill their buckets and bags with enough candy to last them— well, until the end of the week, we hope.
But before they can hit the streets, parents will probably want to know where their kids are planning their trick-or-treat routes.
Zillow took into account average home value, population density, Walk Score (how walk-friendly a city is) and local crime data. With this information in mind, Zillow determined the cities that will provide "the most candy, with the least walking and safety risks."
Let the looting begin.
