For four consecutive years Chicago has been in the nation’s top ten. This top ten is not for best sports town, cultural achievements, or food but as one of the top Trick-or-Treating cities in the nation. (However, it must be noted that Chicago is of course a top ten sports, culture, and food city.) For the past four years Zillow has calculated the top cities for trick-or-treating and Chicago is listed as number six.

Deeming it a “holistic” approach to trick-or-treating Zillow examines the home value index, population density, walk score and local crime data (from Relocation Essentials) to determine which area will provide a high candy return with a low danger rate. Using these statistics Zillow believes they have found the scientific reasoning behind the pinnacle trick or treat experience.

The survey went even further to predict which neighborhoods should produce the ideal neighborhood for Halloween safety and premium chocolate in Chicago. Ravenswood Manor was first, followed by Wrightwood Neighbors, Edgebrook, North Center, and finally Lincoln Park. If you live in one of these neighborhoods get out there and reap the sugary rewards. Or Travel-and-treat if you feel like it, take the hike up to one of these neighborhoods, statistics show it has potential to be a great time and who doesn’t love statistics and Halloween?

Spooktacular cities ranked ahead of Chicago include San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, San Jose, and get this, Honolulu (ranked 3rd). Hawaiian Halloween sounds like a treat.
So congrats to Chicago and a spooky Halloween to us all!
