Take the Trick Out of “Trick-or-Treating”


Want to know the best Halloween route to get the most candy? Nextdoor.com has brought this treat to the palm of your hand with their “Halloween Treat Map.”

The Nextdoor neighborhood Treat Map is a convenient way to see which of your neighbors are handing out Halloween candy this year. It also allows you to let others know that you’re participating in the trick-or-treat fun.

Candy corn markers or purple haunted house markers hover over homes on the map that are planning to hand out candy. You can use the map to plan the most candy-filled route through you neighborhood.
