Top 5 Safest Places to Trick or Treat in Denver

Many families are now deciding to visit nearby neighborhoods to take their kids trick-or-treating. Some families decide to do this because they live in low lit areas or apartment buildings and with the sunset setting earlier, making sure children are in a safe area is extremely important. According to some Denver personal injury attorneys, children injury claims spike during the holidays and parents are taking more precautions, especially during halloween. The good news is, Denver is one of America’s safest cities to take your kids trick or treating. I compiled a list of my favorite according to safety, popularity and festivities. Here are my picks for the best neighborhoods in Denver, that will give your kids a safe and eventful halloween.

#1 Hilltop

Hilltop is one of the safest neighborhoods in the city with a history of putting together a great Halloween night. It’s located Southeast of proper Denver and right next door to Cherry Creek neighborhood. And in case you don’t make it out on Halloween night you can also enjoy their annual Parade.

#2 Cory-Merrill

Just north of the University of Denver is Cory-Merrill, ranked as one of the top safest neighborhoods in the city due to its low crime rates. Neighbors and families get together every year to celebrate halloween and other holiday events. Cory-Merrill is bordered by South Colorado Boulevard and University Boulevard north of the Valley Highway.

#3 Washington Park

Washington Park is another popular area in the city with prime real estate for trick-or-treating. Another great perk about the area is it’s among the top 10 safest neighborhoods in Denver. Washington Park is bordered by Alameda Avenue, Louisiana Avenue, University Boulevard and Lincoln Street.

#4 Cherry Creek

Cherry Creek is one of the most visited neighborhoods in Denver. It is located near the center of the city and has a mixture of urban development and tree lined residential areas. The impressive homes in the neighborhood will almost certainly be decorated with the best Halloween decor in the area.

#5 Whittier

Last but certainly not least, North of proper Denver and right next to the City’s zoo you’ll find Whittier, one of Colorado’s oldest historic neighborhoods and ranked second on the safest cities list in Denver. The neighborhood is bordered by MLK Boulevard and 23rd Avenue. Not only does this community celebrate halloween right, but they hold neighborhood movie nights and other annual block party events, guaranteeing your children and yourself a great experience.

Regardless of what neighborhood you decide to go to, you can’t go wrong in these historic areas, filled with children and parents who want to make Halloween safe and unforgettable.
