Easter Egg Hunts in the DC Area 2023


Hippity, hoppity Easter’s on its way.  Easter decorations are up, and there is talk of the bunny in the house.  There are several Easter egg hunts across the DC Area!

All Easter egg hunts are not the same.  Some are free; some require advanced tickets; others are more forgiving for those of us who are not exactly planners.  If you see a hunt location and date that work for you, be sure to check out the details sooner rather than later.  Happy egg hunting!
