Boo! It's Halloween week! Families and children around Metro Nashville are getting their costumes ready and candy bags ready searching for the perfect spot in the area to hit up for trick-or-treating. Our local Experts have compiled a list of some of the hottest neighborhoods to go trick-or-treating at.
1. East Nashville
This area of town is know for being eclectic year-round. The holiday season doesn't disappoint. East Nashville is home to many residential areas with plenty of sidewalks, parking, and homes handing out candy.
2. Hillsboro/West End
Located between Vanderbilt and Belmont Universities, the area is very walkable with sidewalks lining most of the streets. You'll find decked out homes on every street -- especially on Essex and Barton. Often, Essex is closed to traffic for an uninterrupted, traffic-free experience.
This is the Halloween trick-or-treating jackpot. You'll find the most action on Richland Avenue and on the 3700 block. Neighbors go through gallons of candy, and there are hundreds of pumpkins carved and on display. Even better, there are several homes that go all out -- and when we say all out, we mean it. For your safety, traffic control is even hired.
Hit up Belmont Boulevard and Oakland Avenue for a great Halloween experience! There is ample street parking and cute homes that are totally tricked out -- some that are so decorated, other decorated homes in the area can't even contend.
5. Green Hills & Belle Meade
The lack of walkability in these areas deters many trick-or-treaters. But, if you find a street with houses nestled close to each other, you are sure to find decorated homes and a crowd of trick-or-treaters.
6. Westhaven in Franklin
Here's another Halloween jackpot! It sits just south of Nashville in Williamson County. The neighborhood is filled with townhouses and single-family homes, so you definitely won't run into a shortage of homes handing out candy or kids in costumes.
