Where can you bring your family to trick-or-treat in Greenville? When going door to door asking for sweets in your own neighborhood isn’t the right choice, where do Upstate families go? Safety concerns, a lack of other children in the neighborhood, or just a lack of anyone at all could cause a family to look to other neighborhoods for their trick or treating needs. So if you want the door to door trick-or-treating experience this year but aren’t sure what neighborhood to visit, this is the list for you. We asked our readers where the most “Halloween visitor friendly” spots in the Upstate were, and this is what they told us.
Parents, these are recommendations gathered from our readers. Please always use your judgment regarding your child’s safety trick-or-treating and consuming treats in these or any other neighborhoods.
You can use our Halloween Guide to find fun events, trunk-or-treat and trick-or-treat opportunities, and ways to celebrate Halloween with your family all month long.

Tips for Trick-or-Treating as a Guest in a Neighborhood
Local mom Dallas, had this great bit of advice for those visiting other neighborhoods on Halloween :
Parents: bring a trash bag to help pick up the discarded wrappers and random trash that inevitably happens when we visit neighboring communities for better loot. We live in a rural area and go to local subdivisions and noticed the residents are SUPER appreciative if you help out a bit and don’t leave their neighborhoods trashed.Dallas
I once noticed something being done and have now started doing it when we visit other neighborhoods on Halloween. I bring glow necklaces and bracelets to hand out to kids walking past us trick or treating. It helps keep kids safe, we’re helping to contribute to the loot of trick or treaters in a non-allergenic way, PLUS everyone loves glo-sticks!
We hope that no matter where you decide to go, we hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween!
