SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As the nation gears up for the most neighborly of holidays, Halloween, Nextdoor has released the Top Ten U.S. Cities for Treats. For the first time, Nextdoor analyzed data from the tens of thousands of neighborhoods that use the platform's annual Treat Map feature to create this list. Trick-or-treaters in these top cities will hit the candy jackpot this Halloween.
Top Ten U.S. Cities for Treats:
- Cary, NC
- Ann Arbor, MI
- Omaha, NE
- Columbus, OH
- Frisco, TX
- Orlando, FL
- Downers Grove, IL
- Greenville, SC
- Baton Rouge, LA
- Boise, ID
List methodology: This list is based on the ratio of Nextdoor members who indicated they were passing out candy on their neighborhood's Treat Map to the total number of Nextdoor members in a city. Data was analyzed in U.S. cities where more than 5,000 neighbors are using Nextdoor.
Each day neighbors across the country rely on Nextdoor to connect about the things that matter most in their communities. Every October, neighbors use Nextdoor's Treat Map to let each other know they will be passing out candy by marking their home on their neighborhood's Treat Map with the ultimate Halloween icon, a candy corn. Parents and trick-or-treaters can use the map to plan their routes ahead of time.
"Passing out Halloween candy is one of the most neighborly things you can do," said Nirav Tolia, Co-Founder and CEO of Nextdoor. "We are excited to share this year's list of the Top Ten U.S. Cities for Treats and encourage neighbors everywhere to show their Halloween spirit by adding their own homes to their neighborhood's Treat Map."
Custom lists are also available for the Top Ten Neighborhoods for Treats in select cities. Please send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like one for your area.
