Hop on over to Chicago because they have one of the most egg-citing Easter Eggs Hunts in all of America.

Remember when Easter was only about hunting for actual eggs in your backyard?  Nowadays, parents are creating elaborate Easter baskets to one-up each other and turning this Holiday into Christmas 2.0.

Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo named one of the "Best Easter Egg Hunts in the US."

Lions and tigers and eggs, oh my!  Lincoln Park Zoo will have a Spring Egg-Stravaganza filled with Easter Egg Hunts, craft stations, and plenty of photo opportunities with the one and only Easter Bunny!

This isn't just for kids, parents will be able to enjoy the cash bar and down some bloody marys and mimosas.  Sounds like the perfect day to me...

There will also be tons of other activities to join in on:

  • Musical fun with Mary Macaroni and the Impastas

  • Free rides on the AT&T Endangered Species Carousel and Lionel Train Adventure

  • Outdoor activities and games

  • Chats with zoo animal and horticulture experts to learn more about what spring means at the zoo

  • One $5 Bunny Bucks voucher per attendee to use on a breakfast, lunch or snack item at any zoo concession area

On Saturday, April 8th from 8am - 12pm, take part in one of the coolest events of the year.  It's $35/person and you can get all the info on their website!
