Mission Hills

-Located just north of Old Town, this is a great location for Halloween exploration. The neighborhood has been known to go all out with all sorts of fun (and scary!) decorations. Not recommended for the very little kids or those that get scared easily, but older kids should love seeing all of the effort that the residents put in here.

Scripps Ranch

-Considered by many to be THE hotspot for trick or treating on Halloween. Residents have been known to give out full-sized candy bars (!!!) and even sometimes dollar bills. The Scripps Ranch marketplace also hosts an annual event a few days before Halloween that features rides, store treats, and more!
