From Easter egg hunts to glassblowing, the Cincinnati area offers a variety of activities to keep you and your family hopping. Some activities require registration and spots are limited so don’t wait until the last minute to plan your Easter weekend. Check out these ideas on how to enjoy the Easter holiday this year!


  1. Get egg-cited for Easter at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden! The zoo is hosting an egg hunt April 15 from 12 to 5 p.m. Throughout the park children can find treat stations, activities and even visit with the Easter Bunny. Search for the Golden Eggs is also back by popular demand. Hidden around the zoo will be four “Golden Eggs.” Find one and turn it in at the Welcome Center for a prize.


  2. All aboard the Easter Bunny Express! LM&M Railroad in Lebanon offers a train ride with Lackawanna Coach Class seating and access to an open-air gondola car. Children will be taken to a special visit with the Easter bunny, receive a special gift and have the opportunity to take part in an Easter egg hunt.


  3. This year celebrate Easter by doing something untraditional. With the help of professional glassblowers at Neusole Glassworks children 5 years or older can make their own Easter egg paperweights. Reservations are required by phone or email.


  4. Easter isn’t just for the kids. There’s finally an Easter activity aimed at adults! Anderson Township Park District presents an adult Easter egg hunt April 13 at 7 p.m. There will be three hunts in total, at $2 per person, per hunt. The hunts feature special eggs with tickets that can be redeemed for prizes. Afraid of finding an empty egg and leaving empty handed? No need to worry, empty eggs can be redeemed for candy.
