By popular demand from candy lovers and parents alike, Nextdoor’s Treat Map is back for another year of tricks and treats!

Halloween is the perfect time to head out into the neighborhood and celebrate with neighbors, whether it’s with an incredible haunted house or king-sized candy bars.

To honor one of the most neighborly holidays of the year, Nextdoor is launching the Halloween Treat Map for the second year in a row to give Nextdoor members an insider’s guide to the best streets for treats in your neighborhood.

Nextdoor’s Halloween Treat Map lets you mark your home with a candy corn icon to let your neighbors know you will be giving out candy. We’re taking the guesswork out of Halloween to ensure you find the best, most convenient route possible for your trick-or-treaters, whether you’re on your computer or headed out into the neighborhood with Nextdoor for iPhone and Android.


And new this year: haunted houses! If you’re turning your home into a haunted house, you can mark it on the map so neighbors can plot the scariest route around the neighborhood.


Follow these simple steps to use the Treat Map:

  1. Nextdoor members can sign in to their account. If you are not yet a member, you can sign up and verify your address to ensure you don’t miss out on the fun:
  2. Once signed in, visit your neighborhood map. You will be given the choice to add a candy corn or haunted house on top of your home. If you live in or plan to visit a multi-tenant building, just click on the parcel to see the details of who will be participating in that building.
  3. Encourage your neighbors and friends to place the appropriate icon on the map so you’ll know exactly who is handing out candy or hosting a haunted house.

From all of us at Nextdoor, we hope you have a very happy and safe Halloween. Enjoy the treats!


  • The Halloween Treat Map is a great idea, but having an option to add a message such as “I will be home to give out candy until 6pm only” would be a great addition. The options now are just yes or no. Thanks!

  • This app uses the default home locations from another source such as google maps. Its horrible that we cannot adjust our homes locations. I just joined and our houses are clumped together. I feel bad because I just sent an invite to my neighborhood and they will experience the same default map with their homes not in the right location. NEXTDOOR should allow users to modify house locations etc.
