What’s the Best Neighborhood for Trick-or-Treating in Somerville?

What area is known for going 'all out' for Halloween? Where can a kid with an insatiable sweet tooth clean up?

In any town, there are always those streets and neighborhoods known for great trick-or-treating: We're talking “King-Size” candy (which actually no longer exists), high participation rate among houses, doors close together, decorations, lots of other kids and maybe a haunted house or two.

What are these streets and neighborhoods in Somerville?

I know Willow Avenue near the Brown School tends to be pretty good. Springfield Street, near the intersection of Condord Avenue, tends to have pretty good decorations, too.

Lexington Ave is a destination street for many trick-or-treaters because of its decorations and party atmosphere -- but don't forget to hit the adjoining streets (Spencer and the other side streets) as well as Albion and Hudson Streets, on the other side of Cedar. Many people sit outside on Lexington, Spencer, and Hudson to hand out candy and hang out with neighbors. This year, Lexington Ave ran out of candy before 8.
