Easter usually brings a break for school, basket's full of Cadbury eggs, and of course Easter egg hunts! So to help you decide which way you want to hop, we've found some unique egg hunts and other fun activities along the bunny trail.
The Fabergé Big Egg Hunt
The world's largest Easter Egg hunt began on February 21st in London and will go through Easter Sunday on April 8th, hosted by Russian jeweler, Fabergé. Over 200 two-and-a-half-feet-tall eggs were designed by famous artists, designers, and jewelers and have been placed throughout 12 "Egg Zones" in central London. So grab your Easter basket (or more likely your cameras and your phone to text each egg's keyword) and get to hunting. At the end of the egg hunt, the eggs will be auctioned off for charity and one lucky egg hunter will win the Fabergé Tribute Egg: The Diamond Jubilee Egg.
The White House Easter Egg Roll
On Easter Monday, the First Family will host the 134th annual White House Easter Egg Roll. President Rutherford B. Hayes started the tradition in 1878, and this year more than 35,000 participants will join in for fun and games, and the famous rolling of the colorful hard-boiled eggs across the White House Lawn... even Bo, the Obama's famous dog, might don his bunny ears and join in on the fun. If you didn't get a lottery ticket for this year's event at the White House, then head up Connecticut Avenue to the National Zoo. They also host a free Easter Monday celebration with family activities and a visit by the Easter Panda.
Biltmore Estate's Annual Easter Egg Hunt
Asheville, North Carolina
The Easter rabbit will make an appearance at the Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday at the Biltmore Estate outside of Asheville. Families can spend the morning hunting for eggs and enjoying magic shows, music, and storytelling on the lawn of the largest privately owned home in the United States. Before heading home, explore the estate's gardens and house (which is 135,000 square feet and has 205 rooms), and stop by America's most visited winery on your way out.
Hayes Easter Egg Roll
President Rutherford B. Hayes started the famous White House Easter Egg Roll, but his hometown of Fremont, Ohio, likes to celebrate as well. Egg rolling takes place on Easter Saturday on the grounds of the former president's summer estate, Spiegel Grove. Admission to the event is three hard-boiled colored eggs! And if you'd like to enter into the egg-decorating contest, bring a fourth.
Peanuts™ The Easter Beagle Express
For something a little different, join Snoopy the Easter Beagle on the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad that runs through the canyons of San Juan National Forest in Colorado. On Saturday, April 7, the Easter Beagle Express will depart Durango and head to Cascade Canyon and back. During the ride, children will enjoy visits with the Easter bunny and a reading of Charles Schultz's book, It's the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown. So hurry up and join in as the conductor calls "all aboard!"
