Easter Bunny Breakfasts and Brunches in Connecticut

Spring has officially sprung! The air is fresh and clean, the sun is (sometimes) shining, and it's time to start polishing up those dress shoes and thinking about a nice Easter brunch. Better yet, brunch with the Easter Bunny himself. Of course, not all kids are thrilled when they finally meet a six-foot-tall rabbit. I've got my share of screaming-child-with-bunny photos stashed in the attic somewhere. But hey, those are cherished memories in their own way and great stories to tell their friends when they're teenagers. Meanwhile, if your kiddo is keen to shake a paw and eat a pancake or two, check out these Easter Bunny brunches and breakfasts around the state. 

All-Day Fun: Destination Parks in Houston

Houston is home to a ton of parks. A ton. (Including some pretty great splash pads.) And some are better than others if you're looking to spend more than 30 minutes at an unshaded playground, so we've rounded up 13 parks where you can easily spend a few hours, or even the entire day.

Easter Egg Hunts for Kids in New York City 2017

Easter Sunday, April 16 this year, is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. One of the best ways to celebrate with kids is to attend one of NYC's treat-filled egg hunts. Most are outdoors in playgrounds and parks, zoos, and gardens, but a few are indoors at museums and other cultural spots. Many offer additional spring fun, including seasonal crafts, face painting, and live entertainment.

Remember, Easter egg hunts in NYC are extremely popular so arrive early and expect hordes. If you dislike crowds, avoid the free hunts and opt for those that carry a small fee as they usually cap the number of participants. Or get your photo op with the Easter Bunny in ahead of time at these brunches.

Easter Egg Hunts for Long Island Kids and Families, 2017

Easter soon will be here, and the Easter Bunny will be busy hopping through Long Island, hiding thousands of colorful, treat-filled eggs.

Both Eastern and Western Christian denominations this year celebrate Easter Sunday on April 16. We've rounded up egg hunts and bunny visits in some of our favorite spots.

We're glad to see so many venues have scheduled hunts by age to give both little and big kids a fair shot at filling their baskets. Remember to bring a basket (or a bag) for the kids to hold their collected treasures, and pack your camera for Easter Bunny brunches and photo-ops. (If there's a threat of rain, be sure to give a call first.)

Easter Egg Hunts for Westchester Kids

Once a year in early spring, there is a special kind of magic in the air that allows fluffy little bunnies to lay eggs filled with candy and toys—or so the stories go. Get your child out there to take advantage of this annual phenomenon by attending one of the many Easter egg hunts taking place throughout Westchester. And the biggest treat for parents is that many of them are FREE.

If you're looking for other activities, check out our Event Calendar, which is filled with seasonal fun for children of all ages. While you're out enjoying the spring air, consider a short hike or a stop at one of the county's many nature centers. Maybe someone there can better explain the rabbit-egg-lying process.

Looking for even more spring activities with preschoolers? We have plenty.

Swale: The Floating Food Forest Is Coming Back to NYC

Swale is back, or rather it will be this spring. NYC's first and only floating food forest and garden barge is set to return in April (dates are tentative) when it will set up in the Hudson River near Pier 25 in Manhattan for about two months before pushing off for another borough.

We visited Swale with the kids in Brooklyn Bridge Park when it first docked in NYC last year and had a blast. It's one more example of New Yorkers getting creative about where they can squeeze in a little more green space.
