One of the most popular streets for trick-or treating in Coral Gables, Santa Maria St., sees several thousand costumed kids every Halloween. Vehicles are typically banned from driving on this historic road every Halloween night, which should give peace of mind to parents of younger kids.

The neighborhood between Miami Springs Middle School and Curtiss Mansion (Morningside Drive to Oakwood Drive) is a great place for teens to trick-or-treat on Halloween. In past years, the roads here have been blocked off to vehicle traffic.

Parkland – Cypresshead Drive
Take Holmberg Road to Cypresshead Drive if you want to spend the entire night trick-or-treating in Parkland. There are over 300-400 houses in the area, and many of them hand out candy on Halloween. If you’re heading out with a group, it’s the best place to trick-or-treat in Parkland. Otherwise, the town isn’t a great destination for trick-or-treating; you’d be better off driving to Coral Springs.

Sunrise – NW 41st &NW 117th

Surrounded by water, the serene community in this Sunrise neighborhood has become more Halloween-centric over the years. About half of the 300 homeowners have welcomed trick-or-treaters in the past.

Oakland Park – North Andrews Garden

Halloween decorations abound inside this Oakland Park neighborhood. Located right by the local elementary school, the area is safe for trick-or-treating groups and younger kids.

Plantation – Hawks Landing

A popular neighborhood for wealthier folks – several actors, athletes and musicians live here – Hawks Landing is one of the best places to trick-or-treat in South Florida. Full candy bars aren’t uncommon treasures to dig up in this Plantation area.

Ft. Lauderdale – Victoria Park

If you’re looking to trick-or-treat in Fort Lauderdale, the neighborhoods comprising Victoria Park are great options. Every Halloween, as an immensely popular trick-or-treating spot, the region near Holiday Park sees thousands of costumed ghouls, goblins and ghosts. Show up early to get the best treats.

Southwest Ranches – Griffin Road

The small community is an excellent spot for trick-or-treaters, as there are numerous affluent neighborhoods that give out full candy bars and have decorated homes. It’s very kid-friendly, as well, so safety shouldn’t be a concern if you aren’t chaperoning.

Weston Town Center

If we’re being honest, there’s no better place to trick-or-treat in Florida than Weston, especially the town center. In fact, Halloween is like the city’s holiday of choice, so kids won’t have any trouble filling up their pillowcases with candy. A trip through Bonaventure should do the trick. If your kids are too old to go door to door, the family can celebrate the night in the town’s center, which throws a massive Halloween party every year. Visit the town’s Facebook page to keep up with event details, as they may change.
