Halloween is coming, and you might be in one of the best cities to celebrate it.

Wallethub, an online personal finance resource, looked at what makes the best place for Halloween, ranking of 100 US cities. Ten California cities made the top 20.

Using a weighted ranking, Wallethub assessed trick-or-treat friendliness, which includes the proportion of potential trick-or-treaters — people age 14 and younger — walking rates, crime rates and the proportion of occupied housing units that serve as trick-or-treating stops.

Other factors evaluated include the number of Halloween costume and party supply stores per capita, candy and chocolate stores per capita, bars and clubs per capita, and forecast temperature.

Who made the list?

San Francisco is the highest city in California to make the list, coming in at #2.

It is followed by Los Angeles at No. 4, San Diego at No. 5, San Jose at No. 6 and Santa Ana at No. 9.

Rounding out the list are California cities Anaheim at No. 13, Chula Vista at No. 16, Long Beach at No. 17, Sacramento at No. 18 and Fremont at No. 19.

The best city for Halloween is New York and the worst is Memphis.

Despite being at the top of the list, San Francisco is the city with the least potential for scams. Milwaukee has the highest potential.

Halloween weather in Northern California

Several cities in northern California ranked highly for the best Halloween weather forecast.

Sacramento is in No. 1, p the temperature is forecast to be around 70 degrees.

San Francisco, Fresno and Stockton shared second place, while San Jose and Oakland tied for fifth.
