CINCINNATI -- Boo!

Get your snickers, butterfingers and Kit Kats ready, because the little ghosts and goblins in the Queen City are coming.

Zillow.com , a website helping users search for homes and rentals, ranked the top 20 cities in the country for trick-or-treating and Cincinnati made the cut.

The site used four variables to base their findings: the Zillow Home Value Index, population density, walk score and local crime data from Relocation Essentuals.

They found cities providing the most candy with the least amount of safety risks while walking.

Cincinnati came in at the No. 18 spot. The full list is as follows:

  1. San Francisco
  2. Boston
  3. Honolulu
  4. San Jose
  5. Seattle
  6. Los Angeles
  7. Chicago
  8. Washington, D.C.
  9. Portland
  10. Philadelphia
  11. Minneapolis
  12. San Diego
  13. Pittsburgh
  14. Miami
  15. Denver
  16. Milwaukee
  17. Buffalo
  18. Cincinnati
  19. Baltimore
  20. Virginia Beach
