Bet you can’t guess which Texas city was ranked among the best for Halloween in the country. 

To be honest with you, I’ve never really given much thought as to what makes for a great Halloween city. I’ve never been really big on dressing up and going to costume parties and stuff like that. For me, Halloween is about my kids stockpiling a bunch of candy, which my wife and I will raid from time to time.

However, thanks to WalletHub, I now have a better understanding of what makes one city better than another when it comes to celebrating Halloween. 

As I mentioned earlier, it’s all about trick or treating for my family, as is the case for most people. Trick-or-treating friendliness is one of the key factors researchers looked at while gathering data. If you’re going to invest a bunch of money in Halloween costumes, decorations, candy, etc., you want to get a good return on your investment. 

Of course, having a variety of fun things to do for Halloween factors into just how great a city is for Halloween. So, having plenty of haunted houses, Halloween-themed events, and Halloween stores is a big plus. 

Halloween weather is another key metric used to determine how great a city is for celebrating Halloween. That makes sense. No one likes trick-or-treating in cold, rainy weather. 

When all was said and done researchers found Laredo to be the 11th best city for Halloween in the United States. So, if you happen to be in South Texas this time of year, make sure to make the trip to Laredo to make the most of your Halloween.
