This Massachusetts city ranks second in safest city in America to go trick-or-treating. Before we get to the list, let’s remind you that Halloween is Monday night. There are five days left until we take all of our ghosts, ghouls and goblins door to door to get candy from strangers. A list like this one will make it easier for you to decide where you should take them to feel more safe. Because let’s be honest, getting candy from complete strangers really is a scary thing to do, yet we’ve made it an annual tradition.

This list was developed by researches at the Chamber of Commerce They based it on pedestrian fatalities, violent crime, property crime, registered sex offenders, and law enforcement employees to pinpoint the 25 safest cities for trick-or-treating this Halloween.

The safest city in America to go trick-or-treating is Gilbert, Arizona which just beat out Cambridge. According to researchers “Although it’s known for its college town atmosphere, Cambridge landed high on our list due to its low number of pedestrian fatalities and low number of registered sex offenders.” According to the website: “To determine our ranking, we analyzed data from more than 300 cities and compared those cities across five equally weighted metrics: pedestrian fatalities, violent crime, property crime, number of registered sex offenders, and number of law enforcement employees. Each metric was calculated per 100,000 residents, and each city within our analysis had a population of at least 100,000 or more.”

Let’s take a look at the top 15 cities in America that made the list. In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you about your city and where you go trick-or-treating. Where do you think is the safest place to trick-or-treat in Massachusetts? Where do you usually go? Let us know by emailing us or commenting on our Getup Crew Facebook page.
