The website Nextdoor is making it easier for parents and children to plot their route for candy this Halloween.

It allows homeowners to sign up and let people know if they will have treats available.

The San Luis Obispo area has dozens of homes that will be handing out goodies this year. So you can sign up for free and take a look, even add your house to the list and participate.

To add your home to the Treat Map, follow these simple steps:

  1. If you’re already a Nextdoor member, simply sign into your account. If you are not yet a member, sign up and verify your address to ensure you don’t miss out on the fun:
  2. Once signed in, visit your neighborhood map in the upper right-hand corner of your screen on web. If on mobile, tap the “More” menu in the bottom right hand corner of the navigation bar, then tap “Treat Map”. Once on the map, you will be given the choice to mark your home with a candy corn, haunted house, or teal pumpkin.
  3. Encourage your neighbors and friends to mark their home with the appropriate icon on the map so you’ll know exactly who is handing out treats or hosting a haunted house.
  4. On Halloween, take the trick out of the treat and use the Treat Map to make your way through the neighborhood to score the best candy, treats, and scares.
