Good Places for Halloween Trick or Treating equals Good Neighborhood
If you live in a neighborhood ideal for trick or treating, chances are you live in a good neighborhood. Here’s your checklist:
- Pedestrian friendly streets. Streets are designed for people and accommodate cars. Not the other way around.
- Greens and parks within walking distance that are perfect for neighborhood Halloween festivals.
- Limited dead end streets to allow for the planning of trick or treating routes that maximize the number of houses visited.
- Houses are in close proximity to one another for more efficient candy procurement.
- You know your neighbors and feel comfortable having your kids, especially the younger ones, ring their doors bells and get treats.
- Stores nearby to pick up some extra candy in case you run out.
- A nearby pub or bar, preferably just a short walk away, for the adults to gather after the kids have crashed from their sugar rushes.
Congratulations if your neighborhood shares most of these attributes.
