  • Baldwin Park:  Orlando – Baldwin Park is by far one of the best places to go trick or treating, if you want the good old fashion door to door activity.  Hundreds of kids and their parents will be in the area and you can always go to downtown Baldwin Park and grab a bite to eat after the kids get tired.  Best times to go are 6p – 8p.  Some houses will still hand out candy until around 9p, but after 9p most people shut off their lights.
  • Central Florida Zoo Boo Bash: On Oct. 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., your family can have a wild Halloween at Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens. Besides plenty of trick-or-treat opportunities, the entire family can enjoy activities such as pumpkin-patch photos, a haunted (but not too scary) hayride and animal education shows. Admission to the zoo, which is located about 30 minutes from downtown Orlando, is required. Kids can bring their costumes too!
