Best Trick or Treat Neighborhoods

Friday, October 28, 2011

 

It's trick or treat time this Monday, and we polled every ghoul and goblin to unearth the the best trick or treat neighborhoods. Is yours here? Let us know, below!

Providence

On Providence's East Side, there are some terrific pockets of candy, spooky houses, and great pumpkin carvings. On College Hill, Keene Street is renowned for its jack o' lanterns and haunted houses. Meanwhile, the cluster of houses on Freeman Parkway has a reputation for lots of great decorations, spirit, and attending good candy givers. Olney Street, near Moses Brown School, is also well loved for its looming Victorians that owners really dress up for the night. Grotto is famous for great grabs, and kids from Mount Hope are known to commute to the Blackstone Boulevard area.

Cranston

In Cranston, locals know that Dean Estates, the old-fashioned tract near Garden City, is full of young families who love the holidays and their little ones fill the neighborhood for early trick or treating (kids come from other areas to

enjoy this destination neighborhood).  On the other side of the city, Edgewood's quaint Pawtuxet Village gets the nod for charming houses that are close together (more treats in less time!), lots of pretty trees for spooking up, and it's full of young families with kids and dogs who give out great treats.

Woonsocket

It's worth a trip up Route 146 to Woonsocket's North End, which is chock-full of decorated houses, scary music blaring, kids from all over the city running up and down the sidewalks.

Warwick

Edgehill Road in Warwick's Chatham Village is beloved for its family-friendly vibe, well-lit loveliness, and lots of kids. A real destination.

East Greenwich

Word is that there's great trick or treating all over this town, but locals say that Signal Hill is full of great houses and lots of lively activity, as are the historic homes behind Main St, and the High Hawk area.

Barrington

Word on the tree-lined streets here is that the ‘Roberta Plat’ neighborhood, just off Lincoln Avenue, between Middle Highway and Washington Road is fantastic with lots of modest, family houses, close to each other for ideal trick or treating… maximum candy collecting with minimum walking, plus very little auto traffic… always a success.

Coventry

The hands-down favorite neighborhood here is Wood Estates, which is known for great candy, safe streets, and lots of houses close together. Halloween heaven.

Bristol

Older, savvy Bristol kids love to head over to the Bordertown neighborhood in the Highlands, because the bowls of candy are big and the competition is less.
