It's Easter this weekend, and that's why our top picks focus on the big bunny and all those treasures he hides!
1. For day-before-Easter festivities, is there anything better than going to the zoo where you can see actual bunnies in addition to the holiday-specific variety?
Egg Day: It’s the perfect time to hop on over with your family to enjoy Easter festivities. Kids can meet the Easter Bunny and participate in the egg scavenger hunt at the Lake Evinrude Deck. Throughout the day, visit the Stearns Family Apes of Africa building to get your face painted with a bunny nose and whiskers. At 2 p.m., take part in the parade, which begins at the Northwestern Mutual Family Farm.
