When it comes to celebrating Halloween, where is the best place in Texas to celebrate?

Laredo, Texas


Laredo is the best city in Texas for celebrating Halloween.  Laredo also landed in the Top 20 of the Best Cities in the US for Halloween at number 19.  Other Texas cities made the list but were nowhere near the top.

Why is Laredo the best place in Texas for Halloween?

WalletHub conducted a study and based it on several factors including, Trick-or-Treater-Friendliness, Halloween Fun, and Halloween Weather. Laredo was #8 in Trick or Treater Friendliness,  #94 for Halloween Fun, and #56 for Halloween Weather.

They were also #1 for potential for trick-or-treaters.   This is what shot Laredo into the Top 20 best cities for Halloween in the US.

Plus they have a ton of fun events.

Where is the Best Place in the United States for Halloween?

New York City, of course.   Can you imagine celebrating Halloween in the Big Apple?

In case you're curious, the worst place to celebrate Halloween in the US is Birmingham, Alabama.

No matter where or how you celebrate Halloween, the main thing is to just have fun, be safe and enjoy the holiday.
