Looking for the best TorT for small children in the Sac or Elk Grove area.

Why not hit up the local neighbors who have their lights on? That always worked for me.

I always gave out candy bars to the neighborhood kids and Dots or Tootsie Rolls to anyone I didn't recognize.

Elk Grove - just go anywhere!

East Sac is okay - not as many families so not as much open

We went to Land Park once and it was kind of dead

We are out in Fair Oaks, and I'm highly contimplating going to Elk Grove just to T or T (a friend lives out there)

Oh gosh. I've never heard of this - driving to another neighborhood to trick or treat? Parts of EG being "better," how? As in, more homes giving out more candy? I don't think teaching your kids to "go where the getting is best" is necessarily a good message to be sending them. If your neighborhood is good enough to live in, it's good enough to trick or treat in! And I love seeing my neighborhood kids in their costumes!

Good advice - but before Fair Oaks I lived in Midtown, so we drove over to Land Park

I just had our neighbor stop by and tell us to get a bunch of candy, she's going to Costco to get 5 bags! She says people drive to our neighborhood for treats!

So I guess we stay here - We are in Phoenix Field

actually we were looking for areas that are decorated halloweenish with other little kids about. The kids love all that kind of stuff. We could care a less about the quality or quantity of the candy.
So where are you at with that ...now?

When we lived on American River Canyon Dr parents would drop their kids off in front of our house literally by the van full. We had some of the most rude kids just grabbing handfuls of candy, one actually followed us into the house trying to grab more while I was closing the door. Ridiculous. And there were NOT that many kids in the neighborhood. The neighborhood was not decorated with fun, scary Halloween stuff so it was strictly for the "that's a nice neighborhood, let's go there" mentality. Stay and TorT where you live. Get to know your neighbors and neighborhoods! I didn't give out any better candy there than I did at any of our other houses. In fact, I started giving out DumDums!
