3 Egg-Stravagant Easter Egg Hunts Around the U.S.
One of my kids’ favorite parts of Easter, aside from a huge basket of candy, is the always-eventful Easter egg hunt. Even mention of it brings squeals of joy. Scouring the house, searching behind couches, inside cabinets, under the bed and around every corner is exciting, at least the first five times you do it anyway. If you and your kids are looking for a little more when it comes to hunting for springtime treasures, here are 3 elaborate and egg-stravagant Easter egg hunts around the U.S. that you may want to check out!

World’s Largest Easter Egg Hunt – Copper Mountain, CO
Copper Mountain’s Easter Egg Hunt just keeps getting bigger!

Don’t worry about your little ones getting trampled; there are different hunts for kids of all ages from 3 and under in Copper’s Center Village.

Of course, there will also be photo ops with the Easter Bunny, too. No doubt about it, this hunt promises to be “snow” exciting!
