This one goes out to all the candy addicts and costume-obsessed – Chicago was just named one of the 10 best Halloween cities in America!
A new study by WalletHub compared 100 of the largest cities in the US on 18 Halloween-y metrics to determine the creepiest, crawliest, most utterly-spooktacular metros across the country. Among those factors considered were the average percent of Trick-or-Treaters, the number of good Trick-or-Treating neighborhoods and the number of bars and dance clubs per capita.
Chicago, for what it’s worth, came in at number 7 overall. As my dude up above would say, hell yeah.
Other cities that rounded up the top ten included:
- NYC, New York
- Jersey City, New Jersey
- Los Angeles, California
- Irvine, California
- San Diego, California
- Santa Ana, California
- Chicago, Illinois
- Las Vegas, Nevada
- Irving, Texas
- St. Paul, Minnesota
