Two Michigan Cities Ranked Among Top Ten Towns for Trick-or-Treating
Only two locations east of the Mississippi made the list, and both towns are in Michigan!
According to Smart Asset, Saginaw and Dearborn are tops in trick-or-treating.
How did SmartAsset determine which cities have the best trick-or-treating? They collected data on more than 300 of America’s largest cities, examining weather and crime rates. They also took a look at neighborhood density (based on the idea that more doorbells means more candy),affordability, and population percentage of children.
Here's what SmartAsset had to say about No. 6 Saginaw,
This central Michigan town is the best place for trick-or-treating in the eastern U.S. The more than 1,050 single family homes per square mile means trick-or-treaters can spend less time walking between doors and focus on what matters: collecting candy. It also rated as the second most affordable city in our study so families of modest means can enjoy Halloween in Saginaw."
And No. 8 Dearborn,
The second Michigan city to rank among the top ten best places to trick-or-treat, Dearborn rated especially well for its housing density. It is also home to one of the country’s best October traditions: Halloween in Greenfield Village. The historic village, which has over 80 different historic structures dating back as early as the 17th century, transforms into a spooky (but not scary) haunted town on the three weekends preceding Halloween."
