Best LA Neighborhoods for Trick-or Treating

Angelino Heights Trick-or-Treating

Carroll Avenue and Douglas Street

Angelino Heights, CA

This historic Los Angeles neighborhood is famous for its Victorian mansions, perfectly suited for atmospheric yard haunts, which the locals deck out in elaborate displays for Halloween. Consequently, the area has become a popular destination spot for trick-or-treaters from around Los Angeles, known as the “Haunted District.” Curious haunt-seekers can probably check out the decorations during the last week of October, but trick-or-treating festivities take place on October 31st around 5pm.


Beverly Hills Witch House Trick-or-Treating

Walden Drive and Carmelita Avenue

Beverly Hills, CA

What you will see is a street full of lavish homes draped in Halloween decor. Best of all is the famous “Beverly Hills Witch House” designed in 1921 by Hollywood art director Harry Oliver with the deliberate intent to simulate a storybook residence. Walking by the unruly garden and murky pond, trick-or-treaters may think they have wandered into an elaborate live-action yard haunt version of “Hansel and Gretel”.

​Brentwood Trick-or-Treating

Brentwood Glen, between Church and Beloit Streets

Brentwood, CA

This neighborhood has a reputation for good candy and decorated homes with spooky Jack O’Lanterns. The nearby Brentwood Country Mart hosts a Halloween evening from 3 pm to 6 pm on October 31.
