"By maximizing 'kid-friendly' activities, any city can become a great escape for all," says Trish Winebrenner, Vice President, Marketing. "San Antonio, New Orleans, and San Diego are just some examples of cities that feature Easter activities to make for ideal vacations in time for a family holiday."

Historic missions, a futuristic skyline, and the famous Paseo del Rio make San Antonio a city unlike any other. To complement its landscape of landmarks, San Antonio adds a flash of culture that is unique and all its own. On any given weekend, families enjoy the amusement rides at Fiesta Texas, the oceanic adventures at Sea World, and the culinary and historic splendor of the Alamo and San Antonio River Walk. On Easter weekend, this Texas town kicks-up the family fun with a variety of Easter egg hunts and activities. At the Hip Hop Underwater Easter Egg Hunt, children enjoy a new twist on the traditional egg hunt in the San Antonio Natatorium pool. For a complete list of the Easter Bunny's San Antonio hops visit sanantonio.about.com.

A festival of sight and sound, The Big Easy makes family fun an easy pleasure. New Orleans' historic Jackson Square, renowned Audubon Zoo, and lively cuisine make New Orleans an experience for any age. The city, known for its lively Mardi Gras parades, pushes out the floats once again to complete the season on Easter weekend. Several parades march through the French Quarter on Easter Sunday. At 10:30 a.m., the Historic French Quarter Parade finishes off with parade-goers and riders promenading in Jackson Square. The Chris Owens Easter Parade rolls through the Quarter at 1 p.m. and the St. Charles Easter Parade rolls up and then down beautiful St. Charles Avenue beginning at 11:30 AM at the historic Pontchartrain Hotel.

City by the sea, sunny San Diego invites families to its shores with aquatic and on-land enjoyment. San Diego's year-round moderate climate makes visiting its many amusements a year-round treat. Favorites include the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park, the Birch Aquarium, and Legoland. On Easter weekend, San Diego hosts families at the annual Easter Bonnet Parade and Hat Contest. On Saturday, March 22nd children let their creativity flow free at Petco Park by creating Easter hats, hunting for Easter eggs and bopping along with live dances.
