25 Spring Egg Hunts and Bunny Meet-ups for Easter Week in Los Angeles

Easter Egg Hunts for Kids around Los Angeles and Orange County 2016

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, and check out these 10 egg hunts in Orange County for even more egg ops!

Easter Eggstravaganza - Irvine

There's so much to do at Irvine Park Railroad's annual Easter celebration that you really would need to go daily to do it all (no doubt why the Easter Bunny spends so much time there). Of course, if you were to do it all, you could then start on the OC Zoo, the pony rides, the paddle boats - there's just a lot to do!
