In Central Austin:

Central Austin neighborhoods have high volume of homes per block and are well-trafficked by neighbors making them ideal neighborhoods to trick-or-treat. While the home values and walk score are high, a lot of Central Austin neighborhoods have families that go to annual Halloween parties or have gated entrances and don’t participate in handing out candy. It’s best to avoid these areas – as well as those with college students or other busy night-life neighborhoods around Downtown – and head west or north towards quieter neighborhoods like Hyde Park or Tarrytown.
