Trying to take a vacation with kids can be especially challenging, as that means having to hunt down attractions and activities that will keep them happy. A great family tradition that everyone is sure to love are the Easter egg hunts that takes place in Washington DC. This is actually the perfect opportunity to take in the Cherry Blossom Festival and find something fun for the little ones to do at the same time.
As you might imagine, the most popular of all the Easter events is the annual egg roll that takes place on the White House lawn every year. Tickets to the April 1st event are strictly on a lottery basis, which means you have to get pretty lucky if you want to roll your colored eggs on the hallowed turf of the President’s home. While you may be out of luck for that particular event, there are plenty more to be found around the city on the same day.
There are a couple of great alternatives to the White House Easter event, both of which should appeal to the kids. The first can be found at Madame Tussaud’s wax museum, where the kids can take part in an “eggs-ploration” that is both fun and educational. If you prefer a more traditional setting, then you might prefer the Eggstravaganza at Tudor Place, where the kids can take part in an Easter egg hunt as they explore the historic gardens.
