Local easter egg hunts are great, but some hunts take the tradition to the next level. Here is a list of the best Easter egg hunts in the U.S.
White House Easter Egg Roll
There are few Easter egg hunts more prestigious and famous than the one held each year at the White House. The White House Easter Egg Roll is a tradition that dates back more than 130 years. Tickets are free, but those who want to attend need to submit to a random online lottery for Easter egg roll tickets. This event is the largest public event held at the White House.
Biltmore Easter Egg Hunt
For an Easter egg hunt with true style, Biltmore features a hunt on the lawn of America’s largest home. The French chateau style mansion’s annual event features egg hunting, crafts for kids, roving Easter bunnies, story telling and magic shoes. Tickets to Biltmore required to attend.
Easter Train Rides
For a twist, Easter train rides can be a lot of fun for the whole family. Better yet, there are several throughout the U.S. so one is probably driving distance from you. Easter train rides usually feature the Easter bunny as a passenger or at the end of the ride, and some also have Easter egg hunts at the depot. Here is a great, comprehensive list of Easter train rides.
Easter at Disney World
There is a wide variety of Easter activities throughout the Disney World parks, including a character greeting with Mr. and Mrs. Bunny at Magic Kingdom, who also appear in the parades. There is an Easter egg hunt at Epcot, and candy scrambles at several Disney World resorts.

For a marine version of the Easter egg hunt, Miami’s Seaquarium features a whole weekend of all-day hunts, music and costumed sea characters like Flipper the dolphin.
Philadelphia Easter Bunny Cruises
A unique take on Easter is the Spirit of Philadelphia’s Easter Lunch Cruise and Easter Dinner Cruise. Each features an appearance by “Mr. E. Bunny,” as well as a buffet and D.J.
