Ever wondered where the best places to trick or treat are in Nashville? While we didn’t make Zillow’s top 20 list this year, I still have the best areas and places to go in Nashville!
Nashville ranked 19th on Zillow’s list of the top 20 cities for trick-or-treaters last year, but didn’t quite make the list this year. This list represents the cities that provide the most candy in the least amount of time with the fewest safety risks.
Here are the top Nashville neighborhoods for trick-or-treaters according to a local real estate company:
- Belle Meade Plantation
- East Nashville
- Hillsboro/West End
Plus, don’t forget about Boo at the Zoo at the Nashville Zoo! It offers a safe and exciting experience where kids (under 12) can come dressed in their favorite costume and enjoy carnival games, carousel rides, hayrides, shows and trick-or-treating.
It runs for 11 nights: October 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27 and 28 and goes from 5pm-9pm. You can buy your tickets on the zoo website: https://www.nashvillezoo.org/boo.
Wondering how Zillow determined the ranking? Zillow’s index includes four equally-weighted data variables: The Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score© and local crime data. See which cities made the list last year.
Wherever you are trick-or-treating this year, safety is likely a top concern. Here are five tips to stay safe on Halloween.
- Buddy up: Always trick or treat with at least one other friend or in a group.
- Communicate: Establish a curfew and make sure an adult is accompanying young children at all times.
- Check your child’s costume: Avoid floor-length or vision-impairing costumes like capes and masks. Opt for Halloween makeup when possible.
- Stay in familiar territory: Only trick or treat in familiar neighborhoods, and avoid eating handmade treats from strangers. Stick to factory-wrapped treats.
- Be visible: Carry a flashlight and make sure to look both ways before crossing streets. Only walk through neighborhoods with visible lights, and stay on sidewalks or paths.
