It looks like winter is finally behind us and it’s time to start thinking about Easter, which is less than one week away. For my kids, Easter falls at the end of Spring Break, and since we’re staying home during the break this year, I’m starting to hunt around for fun Easter-themed hotel packages.
If you’re staying in-town too, think about getting away with the kids for a night or two. Here are five overnight family packages filled with bunnies, colored eggs and family fun.
Gaylord National Resort (Washington, DC)
This year, Gaylord National Resort has teamed up with PEEPS & Company to create an Easter package that includes a one night stay, a $50 resort credit, an Easter-themed kids craft, a $10 gift card to use at the PEEPS & Company store in National Harbor and an Easter Candy treat bag. Children 12 and younger can also participate in an Easter Egg Hunt. Rates from $239 (April 4 only).
