In my childhood, it was go "up to the door", but either up or down the
street depending on one's orientation and perspective.
(Of course, when I was real little, we lived in an apartment house, so
sidewalks or walkways of any sort were totally irrelevant. We confined our
Trick or Treating to the other apartments)
