Milwaukee is such a good place to go trick-or-treating as there are several 50s-era homes to visit. Especially if you’re going with much younger kids and you don’t want scary stuff in their goody bag, head over to Milwaukee.

Forget about the fact that you enjoy trick-or-treating; it’s an activity for kids. This makes Baltimore a suitable place for this Halloween culture- there are other kid-friendly activities aside from trick-or-treating.
