Where to Trick-or-Treat in Long Beach

If your kids are anything like mine, you’ve been getting a daily 7am reminder of how many days it is until Halloween. After a weekend full of trunk-or-treat events and Halloween carnivals, the big day is upon us and we’re here with your guide to trick-or-treating in Long Beach.  

Earlier this year, Zillow set out to find out the best trick-or-treat cities in the country. The Trick-Or-Treat Score is based on areas where there are plenty of kids under 10, and where homes are close together, meaning less walking while you’re going door-to-door.

At a more local level, five neighborhoods stood out above the rest. Based on data alone, Zillow picked: Naples, Belmont Park, Cal Heights, Los Altos, and Bixby Knolls. Those are mostly right on the money, admittedly, I had never heard of “Belmont Park” before, but it’s essentially a portion of Belmont Shore. 

Taking those into account, here’s your trick-or-treat guide around Long Beach.

Long Beach Neighborhood Trick-Or-Treat Guide

The youngest kids typically start trick-or-treating in Long Beach as early at 5:30, but around 6:30 is more common as it gives people a chance to get home for work and open their doors for little trick-or-treaters. 

You’ll see lots of toddlers in strollers and wagon, with older kids running all around. We highly recommend glow-sticks or some sort of light for all kiddos, since the streets can tend to get rather dark throughout Long Beach. 

In addition to this list, check out Nextdoor for their treat list where neighbors indicate whether they’ll be offering candy at their house or not. 


Belmont Heights

Not every house gets into it, but plenty do and it's a good time. Streets between 1st and 3rd through Park and Redondo.

Bluff Park

1st & 2nd Streets between Redondo and Junipero. Wide streets, lots of light, and fun crowds.

California Heights

Anywhere around Wardlow & California Ave

Bixby Knolls

Lots of good spots here, any neighborhood off Atlantic from Bixby to San Antonio.

Virginia Country Club

Most of the spots around Los Cerritos park get in the Halloween spirit.

Los Altos

It's hit or miss throughout Los Altos, but you can definitely find pockets of houses ready to go. Marita Street is a local fave.

Carson Park

The neighborhood South of Heartwell Golf Course is always solid.


A newcomer to the list as one of the fastest-growing neighborhoods for young families in Long Beach, Around Hill and Golden we saw a decent amount of trick-or-treaters last year.

183rd & Palo Verde

Not sure what this neighborhood is called, to be honest, I generally call it "almost Cerritos." Nonetheless, it's a nice trick-or-treat spot.


The legit suburbia of the Long Beach area. Lots of mini haunted house setups and good times all around.

El Dorado Park Estates

Aka Rancho Estates, the areas around Wardlow and Studebaker are hoppin' come Halloween nightl

Belmont Shore & Naples

Down on the Naples peninsula as well as the area they call Belmont Park (between 2nd and Appian Way) you'll have some good trick-or-treating in store for you.

Retail Trick-Or-Treat Guide

Nearly every shopping corridor, mall, and shopping center does some sort of trick-or-treat on Halloween. Here are a few we’ve checked out.
