Whether you’re looking to hunt for ghosts at The Alamo,  tour the 4-Star Rated Terror Mansion (photo above), or head to a pumpkin patch, the city of San Antonio never falls short during Halloween season.  Adding to their spook-tacular resumé,  San Antonio has been ranked as the nation’s 19th best trick-or-treating city, according to Zillow’s 2010 Trick-or-Treat Housing Index. And, for those that have their hopes set on bringing home a stash of candy, Zillow has the low down on the top trick-or-treating neighborhoods in San Antonio.

There is a common belief that wealthy neighborhoods are the Holy Grail for harvesting the most Halloween candy. However, to provide a more holistic approach to trick-or-treating, the Zillow Trick-or-Treat Housing Index was calculated using four equally weighted data variables: Zillow Home Value Index, population density, Walk Score and local crime data from Relocation Essentials. Based on those variables, the Index represents neighborhoods that will provide the most candy, with the least walking and safety risks.
