Where oh where should the kids go trick-or-treating this year? There are dozens of neighbourhoods in the city just waiting for the little ones to race through with their pillow cases full of candy.

The best neighbourhoods are ones with great walkability, nearby cities and other conveniences, homes with accessible and safe front entrances and streets that offer a connected route for walking. Good Halloween decorations are also a big factor when it comes to trick-or-treating – homes with lots of pumpkins and other decorations tend to attract more kids and make for a more memorable experience.
