As little ghouls and goblins gear up to trick-or-treat in neighborhoods across the country, we wondered: where exactly are they most likely to find treats?
We analyzed data from neighborhoods that use the Treat Map to find the cities for trick-or-treating across the country. Did your city make the list?
This year, Madison, WI tops the list as the best place to find candy this Halloween, followed closely by Omaha, Nebraska; Raleigh, North Carolina, and Aurora, Colorado. This year also includes a few newcomers to the list, including Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Nashville, Tennessee; and Silver Spring, Maryland. Kids and parents alike in these cities are sure to hit the Halloween jackpot this year and fill their pumpkin pails with candy.
Every year, we launch the Treat Map to give Nextdoor members an insider’s guide to the best streets for treats. The Treat Map allows Nextdoor members to mark their home with a candy corn icon to let neighbors know they’ll be giving out candy. Neighbors can also plot haunted houses on the map, making sure trick-or-treaters everywhere know which houses to stop by for a spook-filled thrill.

List methodology: List based on the ratio of the number of Nextdoor members who indicated they were passing out candy on Nextdoor’s Treat Map in 2016 to the total Nextdoor members in a city. Data was analyzed in U.S. cities where more than 5,000 residents are signed up for Nextdoor. The list includes the city with the highest ratio from each state, up to 10 states.
