Egg Hunts and Bunny Fun on Easter Weekend for LA and OC Kids

Easter Egg Hunts around Los Angeles and Orange County 2013

Some of us have lovely gardens and the inclination to creatively hide eggs in them early on a Sunday morning. Others have an inclination to sleep late and find eggs hidden in someone else's garden. We find no shame in that and are more than happy to help guide you to lots of places where Peter Cottontail has evidently just been moments before. Most of the egg hunts below take place Easter weekend; keep an eye on our Event Calendar for last minute additions, or check out these other places to meet the Easter Bunny!
