What Are the Best (And Worst) Cities for Halloween?


Before you put on your costume and down enough sugar to power a three-year-old for a year, you may want to know how your town ranks when it comes to the spookiest time of year.

WalletHub has come out with a list of the best and worst cities for Halloween. The site created the rankings by analyzing 15 factors in three different categories, including entertainment, environment and safety; parties and activities; and weather.

So, which metropolis out-terrified the others? Minnesota’s Twin Cities stuck a fang in the competition — St. Paul took first, while Minneapolis landed in the silver spot. Texas placed four cities in the top 10.

Winston-Salem, North Carolina is hardly the sweetest place to be. It took last.
