Are you wondering where to take your kids trick or treating this year? Maybe your neighborhood isn’t really into Halloween, or you may just want a change of scenery. Here are the best places in Queens to help change up the trick or treating this year.

Middle Village

This neighborhood is a prime spot for some sweet treats. Some residents start decorating their houses for Halloween at the end of September. The blocks around Juniper Valley Park are your best bet.

Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills

The stores and restaurants that line Metropolitan Avenue are a great spot for candy hunters. A lot of the stores have been there for years, and you won’t really find big corporations. It’s more “mom & pop” than Target. Plus, you can hit up Eddie’s Sweet Shoppe if you haven’t satisfied your sweet tooth.

166th Street between 45th and 46th Avenues in Flushing

Residents of this Flushing block take trick or treating to the next level. Every year, the entire block hands out candy to over 700 kids, and each year the turn out gets bigger and bigger. Last year, they even had a band playing live music. This is definitely a sight to see.
