Reason #578 That Seattle Kicks Butt


Yeah, that's right. Seattle, Washington. Over all, West Coast kids collect far more 'loot' on Halloween than there East Coast counterparts. Seattle is followed by #2. San Francisco, #3. Portland, OR and #4. San Jose, CA. 11 out of the top 20 cities in the study are West Coast cities. 2-Pac would be proud (he was West Coast, right? That's a thing right?). The rest of the cities were spread evenly across the Midwest, Northeast and South.

The smarties at executed this study by calculating four evenly weighted data variables: Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score and local crime data from Relocation Essentials (all can be looked at on So, from those variables, the Index represents cities that would provide the most candy, with the least walking and safety risks.

WITHIN Seattle, these are the best neighborhoods to Trick-or-Treat in (based on the same variables used earlier):
1. Wallingford
2. Ballard
3. Queen Anne
4. Roosevelt
5. Ravenna

Again, thank you to for developing such an awesome Index and proving once again that Seattle is the coolest city in the world.
