We fancy ourselves pretty festive here in Seattle. We carve jack-o-lanterns, dress up our dogs and bust out the vampire fangs every October. But there are a few cities that do trick-or-treating better than Seattle, according to an annual ranking by real estate site Zillow.
The gallery above breaks down the top 10 cities for trick-or-treaters in the U.S., factoring in information such as home values, walk scores, population density and crime statistics. And it’s all in the name of figuring out where kids can find the best loot. A noble cause, indeed.
Zillow also revealed the top neighborhoods within Seattle for trick-or-treating.
Not surprisingly, Loyal Heights topped the list. Next came Phinney Ridge, Wallingford, Madison Park and Roosevelt.
I’ve never had one trick-or-treater at my place in North Seattle — but it’s just as well. I’ve also never remembered to buy candy. Is there a Halloween version of Ebenezer Scrooge?
