PHOENIX — One great and existential question crosses the mind of every kid every Halloween night: “Where can I go to get the most and best loot?”

We here at ABC15 want to do our part to help kids answer this age-old question. So we crunched the numbers using the most recent census data available to find neighborhoods in the Valley that have an above average number of houses in a relatively small area and an above average number of houses with kids.

We found over 70 neighborhoods scattered across the Phoenix metro area where the houses should be plentiful and the candy high quality.

Based on the data, one of the best neighborhoods for kids to score prime sweets can be found in Power Ranch in the East Valley, where there are over 2,000 houses in an easily walkable area and over half the houses in the neighborhood have kids.

Check out our map below to find a neighborhood close to you that fit our criteria.
