Where to go for bonnets, baskets, and brunch
Spring break is over, and summer still feels far off. So how do you satisfy the urge to travel? We’ve got your solution… or rather, the Easter Bunny does.
Because whether you’re hunting for eggs or hunting for an adventure, a weekend getaway can help you find egg-sactly what you’re looking for. And we’ve got your guide to the best places to fly for Easter.
Looking for some late-season snow? Head over to Breckenridge, which typically has snow well into May.
April is actually one of its snowiest months, which makes it the ideal time to visit. Warmer weather and plenty of fresh powder make it fun for beginners and experts alike! Plus, the longer days mean you’ll have plenty of time to ski or snowboard.
After hitting the slopes, spend some time exploring downtown Breck. If you’re looking for a post-slope drink or two, Breck’s après scene is a can’t-miss!

Okay, the Windy City may be a tad cool in April, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the best places to fly for Easter. Sure, there are the typical kids-friendly activities (egg hunt at the zoo, anyone?). But Easter in Chicago is for adults, meaning plenty of fun for you and your crew!
Our favorite Easter activity is hands-down the Adult Easter Egg Hunt, held every year in Logan Square. Adults pair up and scour the neighborhood looking for eggs, winning prizes donated by local businesses.
If you’re traveling with Fido, bring your fur baby to Horner Park’s Doggie Egg Hunt. Eggs are filled with yummy dog treats!

Hilton Head, SC
Celebrating Easter with a younger crew? Then Hilton Head is one of the best places to fly for Easter with the whole fam!
Their famous “Easter Eggstravaganza” has hundreds of eggs hidden all over Shelter Cove Park. Some of them even have “golden tickets” for special prizes. The Easter festivities also include ziplines, carnival games, bounce houses, and live music.
While you’re there, make sure you visit the charming beach town of Tybee Island, just a short drive away. Kids will love climbing up the lighthouse, building sandcastles, or just playing in the surf.
Best Easter Getaway: when you’re celebrating with the kiddos
New York City, NY
Let’s face it, you guys: the Big Apple knows how to celebrate its holidays, and Easter is no exception.
First up is the annual Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival. Sure, you can watch from the sidelines, but why miss the fun? This parade is all about hats… the more elaborate and outrageous, the better. So dress up in your favorite (pastel) Easter clothes, add a bonnet, and march up 5th Avenue.
If all that parading doesn’t tire out your legs, head over to Rockefeller Center. The world’s most famous ice skating rink has been turned into an outdoor roller skating rink, complete with deejays, live music, and what NYC does best – food.

Easter in the sun? Yes, please! San Diego’s well-known pleasant weather and its abundant brunch options easily win the city a spot on our list of best places to fly for Easter.
This sunny SoCal city makes the most of its waterfront location for the holiday with Easter-themed cruises. Brunch cruises include sweet and savory gourmet dishes while tempting you with mimosas.
Prefer to stay on land? Make your way over to the famed Hotel del Coronado for a beachfront brunch that includes champagne and oysters.
