No, it's not because of the smell of the Sugar Beet Factory. But as a Nampa resident I love that fact that we have been ranked #2 in the Best Places to Trick-or-Treat in 2019 from Smart Asset.

They formulated the data after looking at seven different metrics: single-family housing density, percentage of residents younger than age 15, median home value, violent crime rate, property crime rate, precipitation rate and average temperature.

The top 10 places to Trick-or-Treat in 2019 are:

  1. Orem, UT
  2. Nampa, ID
  3. Dearborn, MI
  4. Aurora, IL
  5. Kennewick, WA
  6. El Paso, TX
  7. Olathe, KS
  8. Elgin, IL
  9. Appleton, WI
  10. Racine, WI

The reasons that Nampa was highlighted at #2 on this list is because it has such a historic low for precipitation at just 0.6%. The average temperature for Halloween-day is 58.5 degrees, which isn't bad at all. Plus, the density of single family homes is great, making it easy to capture lots of candy quickly.
