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.
