The Top Plano Neighborhoods to Go Trick or Treating

It’s almost time to get the kids all dressed up to go trick or treating! Now that you have the all the fun Fall Festivals to attend, the Best Pumpkin Patches to Visit, and some Fun Halloween Event for Kids, how about the top Plano neighborhoods to go trick or treating? There are some areas around town that go all out and make it so much fun for kids. Here’s a look at some great places to take kids on Halloween night.

The Top Plano Neighborhoods to Go Trick or Treating

Singletree Tr. 75023 (NW corner of Parker/Indep)

This mainly consists of one house who some call ‘The Halloween House,’ but the street is nuts! This one house goes above and beyond that it’s decor literally takes up nearly 3 houses worth. The entire street will be blocked off and even if you don’t come trick or treat that night it’s a must stop or stare at! All the neighbors sit outside and pass out candy to 1000 kids! A DJ tops the night with fun Halloween music. You do not want to miss this house! We go every year and it does not disappoint.

Trick or treating in Plano

Canterbury Drive 75075 (near Park/Independence)

This is a fun street that is almost directly across the street from Plano Senior High School. Several neighbors work together to create fun scenes/themes in the front yard. Kids from all over always want to come to Canterbury court! Some can be scary (just FYI) but it’s all in good fun for kids. The neighbors and atmosphere are great. This place will be VERY crowded so be prepared for lots of people and kids.

Whiffletree Area (Behind Davis Library)

This neighborhood does it right! The entire area is blocked off for safety so cars cannot drive through. Moms tell us there are popcorn machines and tons of fun everywhere. They are passing out candy and ready to have some fun!
