If you’re out trick-or-treating this year, aim for a neighborhood where you’ll get a king-size candy bar, not floss.

Real estate database Zillow broke down the 20 best cities and neighborhoods to visit this Halloween night. These streets guarantee a Halloween-friendly atmosphere due to an abundance of kids under 10 and high home values.

Plus, the houses are close together, so you can optimize how many houses you visit before the night’s up. Zillow released the list in 2018, but a company representative told Business Insider that the numbers wouldn’t change much year-to-year.

Here are Zillow‘s top 20 places for trick-or-treating:
