More than 69 percent of Americans are planning to celebrate Halloween this year, be it with buckets of candy or the perfect costume. If you’re really committed to getting spooked, know that not all cities celebrate October 31 with equal dedication.
WalletHub, a personal finance website, set out to determine the absolute best cities in the United States for Halloween. They analyzed 100 of the most populated cities in the country and ranked them according to friendliness of trick-or-treaters, their Halloween parties and activities, and the weather revelers can expect at the end of October.
Scores even considered a city’s population of children, the number of candy and chocolate stores, costume shops, pumpkin patches, and haunted houses per capita.
