Activities To Get You Out of the House this Weekend in New Jersey

This weekend is hopping with Easter Bunny visits and springtime fun galore. You can catch up with the Easter Bunny at Alstede's annual Easter and Springtime Family Festival, local egg hunts, like the one on the Ocean City boardwalk, or train rides, like the Easter Bunny Express.

Amusement park season springs into action this weekend as well. Don't miss the season openings at Jenkinson's and Six Flags Great Adventure, among others. 

If you're staying in, check out our Poppins@Home site, where kids can pick up new dance moves with a virtual hip-hop class and a children's ballet class.

For even more fun, bookmark our always-updated Event Calendar, which is full of ways to stay busy during your upcoming spring break staycation.

Editor's note: While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our Event Calendar to find something else to do. Please plan your outings in advance, as many venues require timed-entry tickets or reservations to limit crowd size.
