With the era of trunk-or-treat vs the tradition of ringing doorbells, parents are met with a new dilemma. What is the safest (and most entertaining) option for their children?
Growing up, I had the privilege of trick-or-treating in a very safe neighborhood that offered a low-traffic and watchful community. My parents knew that no matter where my sister and I went, we would be safe.
Not every parent in the state of Connecticut has that luxury. Some live on main roads, others live in dimly-lit areas, while others are well aware of the danger that lurks outside.
Which is why trunk-or-treat is such a smash hit! Kids get to run around and collect candy in a bright area, like a school parking lot, and are surrounded by equally-concerned parents.
However, there’s nothing like getting your fill of candy the traditional way: running from house to house and ringing doorbells.
CT Post has compiled a list of the 10 safest cities for trick-or-treaters. So, parents, if you’d rather have your child work for candy the old fashioned way, click through this list to find the safest neighborhood closest to you!
