San Francisco Named Top Town for Trick-or-Treating
(SEATTLE) -- While San Francisco may get slammed for being among the least affordable cities in the U.S., the Bay Area metropolis received high Halloween honors for the third year in a row when Zillow named it the top town for trick-or-treating in its annual "20 Best" list.
Analyzing a combination of data including home values, population density, walkability and crime data, Zillow determined that the luxurious abodes and spacious sidewalks of the city are a boon to tiny ghosts and ghouls.
"There are many factors that make an area a good place to trick-or-treat," said Zillow's chief marketing officer Amy Bohutinsky. "The cities that made the top of our list had winning combinations of walkable neighborhoods, high home values -- as we theorized that bigger homes in more expensive neighborhoods would give out bigger, better candy -- low crime rates and high population density."
Boston, Honolulu, San Jose and Seattle rounded out the top five on the Zillow list.
Trailing behind them were Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Portland, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, San Diego, Pittsburgh, Miami, Denver, Milwaukee, Buffalo, Cincinnati, Baltimore and Virginia Beach.
