When you're a kid, having a good neighborhood for trick-or-treating is like hitting the jackpot of life.

Your personal criteria? The spookiness factor of each house on the block; a decent amount of yards filled with over-the-top Halloween decorations; and of course, neighbors who are nothing but on-point when it comes to their candy selection.

When you get to be a parent, you're just concerned about how safe the neighborhood is. (And that as few neighbors as possible encourage your kid to "take us much as you want" from the candy bowl.)
