Who knew? DC is among the top ten cities for Halloween trick-or-treating

Pumpkins, haunted houses and costumed kiddos can only mean one thing – it’s time for Halloween!

Every year, Zillow’s team of economists crunches the numbers to find the best cities for little ghosts and ghouls to score the best candy. These cities are based on places where home values are high, there are plenty of kids under 10, and where homes are close together, meaning less walking while you’re going door-to-door. After sliding to third place last year, San Francisco reclaimed its title as the #1 city for trick-or-treating, followed by San Jose and Philadelphia, which was last year’s top city. This year’s newcomers to the list are Long Beach, Calif., El Paso, Texas, and Mesa, Ariz.

Happy Halloween!
