In a recent ranking of the best cities for trick or treating in the country released by Zillow, Seattle was in the top 10, nabbing the 10th spot.1 This is great news for children and their parents who plan on going trick or treating this Halloween.
While kids may only consider the quality and amount of candy available when it comes to choosing the perfect trick or treating spot, parents will no doubt have other things in mind. They’ll want to bring their children to a neighborhood that has a lot of kids, safe streets, a high housing density, decorated homes, and, yes, plenty of candy to offer.
Our Seattle residential movers know a thing or two about the neighborhoods that make up the Emerald City. If you’re looking for the best places to take your little monsters candy-hunting, here is a selection of the best Seattle neighborhoods for trick or treating!
When it comes to bigger homes, a close-knit community, and plenty of residents under the age of 10, Laurelhurst checks off all the boxes. For a more traditional Halloween trick or treating experience that’s sure to bring in an impressive candy haul, this affluent neighborhood is a good bet. Residents go full out decking out their homes with spider webs, ghosts, Jack o’ Lanterns, and other spooky decorations – and they aren’t stingy on the candy either.
In Montlake, the residents fully embrace the Halloween spirit when it comes to decorating their homes to match the strange and bizarre season. Front yards become cemeteries and skeletons can be seen crawling out of graves! But for the best Halloween décor, trick or treaters better not miss the Trick or Treat House at 2236 E Blaine St. Created by the artist James Sutherland, this colorful and haunting exhibition has been part of Halloween at Montlake for 13 years.
While this neighborhood is closer to downtown Seattle, the family-friendly street and special events make it one of the best Seattle neighborhoods for trick or treating. Go trick or treating at local businesses, owners and shopkeepers are happy to give out candy from their perfectly decorated shops. Enjoy the Kids Halloween Parade, also known as “Hilloween,” and trick or treat with tons of other children from Capitol Hill’s Mitchel Activity Center, through the streets of Broadway, to the whimsically decorated homes in North Capitol Hill. Also featuring carnival games and live performances, there’s plenty of other stuff to do once you kids’ candy buckets are filled up.
