You could hit up a chocolate shop or a candy store, pop open some plastic eggs and hide them around the house—but we think it's much more fun to go on an Easter egg hunt elsewhere. Before you begin your holiday brunch, take the little ones to one of these eight Easter egg hunts, from a Downtown Los Angeles family festival to a scavenger hunt by the beach.

8 places to go on an Easter egg hunt
Celebrate a laidback Easter on the waterfront at the Easter Hoppening in Malibu Bluffs Park. This all-inclusive event offers fun for the entire family: the age-based egg hunts begin at 3:30pm with an all-ages family hunt at 5pm. The searches are free; just bring a basket—and a camera. After unearthing your loot, enjoy some of the other activities; arts and crafts, food trucks, photos with the Easter Bunny and cartooning for kids will be on offer, plus bounce houses and face painting (for a small fee).
Partake in one of several Easter egg hunts along with bounce houses, facepainting, arts and crafts and more during this kid-friendly, Downtown celebration at the FIDM-adjacent Grand Hope Park. One ticket is good for an entire family (up to 7 people); street parking around the park is free on Sundays. New City Church of L.A. is organizing the event and putting the proceeds toward helping homeless children in DTLA.
Pet real bunnies and search for hundreds of candy-filled eggs hidden throughout the Galvin Physics Forest at this Pasadena celebration. Create spring art, learn the bunny hop and pet real bunnies with the Bunny World Foundation. The Easter egg hunt will be closed off to regular museum patrons, so you'll need to pre-register for a time slot to participate.
Take part in an afternoon of free kids entertainment and Easter egg hunts at Pershing Square, starting with a hunt for those under 4 at 12:30pm. Since it's a city-produced event, you'll be able to pose for photos with the non-denominational "Spring Bunny"—but we've heard he's close friends with the Easter Bunny.
