Easter isn’t traditionally considered a traveling holiday, but if you’re willing to think outside the box, it can be the best time of year to visit our city on the bay. The heat of summer has yet to hit and the cooler temps of winter are just a memory, making it a wonderful time to get out there and hide the Easter eggs for your “littles.” If you’re considering an Easter in Annapolis, following this guide to activities and events will ensure you don’t miss out on a single moment of fun!
Meet the Bunny for Easter in Annapolis
Fear of missing the Easter Bunny is very real, but not something your children will have to worry about during your Annapolis visit; he can easily be spotted in many of the malls in the area, right up until the day before the holiday. As a matter of fact, you have the opportunity to skip the long lines you usually find in malls by making reservations for a meet, greet, and picture taking session at the Westfield Annapolis Mall—just click on this link right here.
The third most favorite part of an Easter in Annapolis for kids is the Easter Egg Hunt; running around carrying baskets as they hunt for colorful eggs, either real or plastic. Easter in Annapolis offers a variety of egg hunting opportunities that will garner giggles and laughs from your favorite bunny lovers all over town. Our favorite is the Easter Egg Hunt and Family Festival held at Bay Ridge Christian Church, 1071 Bay Ridge Road. Featuring pony rides and face painting, bouncy houses, and midway type games in addition to the star of the show, the Egg Hunt, this is an event that brings joy to all who attend!
