Let's all just admit it: trick-or-treating is the most important part of Halloween, especially if you'll be with kids (your own or someone else's) on Oct. 31. The good news is, if you live in Chicago, there are tons of great trick-or-treating spots that'll mean festive fun for the whole family. (Yes, including you. Don't forget your costume and treat bag either.) Though it's still a little ways away, if you're already making your Halloween plans, you need to know the best places to trick-or-treat in Chicago. Chicago is a big city made up of a ton of distinct neighborhoods, many of which do their own thing as far as holidays are concerned, which means you have choices beyond just going door-to-door in your own neighborhood.
Whether you're going to stay close to home, venture out into the suburbs, trick-or-treat at businesses, or trick-or-treat at homes, participate in big Halloween events, or do something more informal, you have a near-endless number of options that'll get everyone excited for one of fall's biggest days. Grab your costume, your Ventra Card, and, of course, something to hold your candy, and get ready for some of the best trick-or-treating spots that Chicago has to offer.
