Miami Beach

Miami Beach’s Lakeview neighborhood gets anywhere from 500 to 1,000 trick-or-treaters. Police are closing off the neighborhood to cars between Alton Road, 51st Street and Lakeview Drive from 6 to 8:30 p.m

Coral Gables

In Coral Gables, police plan to close Palermo Avenue between the 600 and 700 blocks and Santa Maria Street and limit access to Cocoplum.

Trick-or-treaters also flock to Miracle Mile.

South Miami

Near South Miami, the High Pines neighborhood (between Southwest 72nd Street and 80th Street) is another popular spot.

Miami Springs

In Miami Springs, trick-or-treaters congregate near Curtiss Parkway.

Miami Shores

The area east of Biscayne Boulevard off Northeast 96th Street attracts a lot of trick-or-treaters. The Bayside neighborhood east of Biscayne between Northeast 69th and 72nd Streets is another favorite.


In Kendall, Hampshire Homes, located on 117th Avenue just north of 120 Street, right in front of the Caballero Rivero Woodlawn South Cemetery (just to make things extra creepy), goes really hard for Halloween. Better Uber there because 117th Avenue is under construction and parking is going to be a mess.
