L.A. Named The #2 U.S. City For Trick-Or-Treating
Dear Candy Lovers: Los Angeles is apparently the second best place in the country to get your trick-or-treat on. This number comes from the real estate site, Zillow, which ranks each city for its candy-collecting potential every year. Zillow uses the population density, walkability and crime data to figure out which 20 cities provide the highest candy yield in the least amount of time, but with the fewest hazards.
This puts San Francisco in the top spot, followed by us, then Chicago, Philadelphia and San Jose. Our ranking has steadily moved up through the years. Zillow didn't figure in weather, but we'd like to think our warm Octobers probably don't hurt either.
Each top city has also been broken up into the best neighborhoods. Zillow recommends candy aficionados in Los Angeles hit up Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Cheviot Hills, Bel Air and Eagle Rock.
