The 20 Best Cities In America For Trick-Or-Treating This Year



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 recently named its 2012 list of the 20 Best Cities To Trick-or-Treat, and we've got them here, along with some of the best candy in each city. 

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.

#20 Baltimore, Maryland

Best Baltimore Neighborhoods: Homeland, Roland Park, Cedarcroft, Hampden, Lake Walker

Walk Score: 64

Population Density: 16,069

Average Home Value: $219,800

Sweet City: Despite the funny name, Wockenfuss Candies are a Baltimore and Maryland state staple. Sink your teeth into their "harvest mix" candy, gummy pumpkins, caramel apple candy corn, or actual candy apples (including one covered in crushed Oreos).

#19 Virginia Beach, Virginia

Best Virgina Beach Neighborhoods: Great Neck, Thalia, Kempsville, Kings Grant, Cape Story by the Sea

Walk Score: 41

Population Density: 1,976

Sweet City: Popcorn balls used to grace many of the candy stashes of trick-or-treaters gone past. Jody's Gourmet Popcorn still brings the spirit of Halloween with its popcorn. They stock sweet popcorn like cinnamon toast and chocolate toffee drizzle, and carry Halloween funfetti-colored popcorn in October.

#18 Cincinnati, Ohio

Best Cincinnati Neighborhoods: Mount Lookout, Hyde Park, Oakley, Clifton, Mount Adams

Walk Score: 59

Population Density: 3,628

Average Home Value: $123,100
