Halloween is a little less than 2 weeks away, and it's never too early to start getting your Halloween and/or Trick or Treating plans together, especially if you’ve got little ones, having a game plan for trick or treating will DEFINITELY make life a bit easier.

Since there are tons of different trick or treating options in the Lansing/East Lansing area, I thought I’d help you out by doing the legwork myself. Here are five different trick or treat options that can help fulfill your candy quota this year!

*Keep in mind that most neighborhoods do door-to-door trick or treating from 6 – 8 p.m. on Halloween night*
