Best New York events and traditions for a Happy Easter

 

Whether you are a resident of New York or a visitor in our fair city, Easter is a holiday best celebrated together with your family and friends. For this year, we have made a list of Easter activities that are worth considering.

Visit the rabbits at Queens Zoo. Wow your little ones with an egg hunt, crafts for the children, a visit from the Easter Bunny, and an unforgettable petting zoo of live rabbits. Spaces for the event are limited, so consider getting there early or pre-ordering tickets through their website. Tickets include standard zoo admission, activities, and amenities.

Find unique festivities at Floyd Bennett Field. Find your way to Brooklyn for a surprising springtime farm adventure in the biggest city in America. A traditional egg hunt, photos with the Easter Bunny, hayrides, bulldozer rides, pony rides, and a petting zoo should prove to be fun for all ages. Forget about the stress of having to drive yourself and let our quick, reliable, and comfortable New York car service take care of all your transportation needs.

Hunt for eggs in an unforgettable place. Or several. New York is brimming with unusual Easter egg hunt opportunities, and sure to have something to tickle your fancy. From the NYC Fire Museum to an athletic hunt at Brooklyn Boulders, there is something for everyone. Remember, however, that free public events in the city can attract throngs of people and involve long waits. If you prefer a calmer atmosphere, go to a paid event as they typically have an attendance cap. If you'd like to visit multiple events, use our limousine service for your NYC ground transportation needs. Let our professional chauffeurs worry about navigating the busy streets and finding parking space while you and your friends and family enjoy your time together.

Don your bonnet for the Easter parade. The famed and world-loved NYC Easter Parade on Fifth Avenue has been around since the 1870s. At its peak, it has drawn over one million people to the route. Even at its lowest, crowds top over 30,000. Be sure to wear your best (or silliest) Easter bonnet, and you can join right in and become part of a nearly 170-year history.

Indulge your brunch desires and fill your (shopping) baskets. If looking for eggs and hanging out with bunnies isn't your idea of great holiday fun, there's still great Easter traditions to be had in the city. Fantastic brunch spots will serve up special menus to lure you in, but consider making reservations to contend with inevitably large crowds. Find a holiday gift for anyone on your list at our world-class chocolatiers, renowned flower market, and amazing boutiques for any imaginable product. To avoid crowded holiday shopping, try to time your visits to coincide with large Easter events nearby that may draw locals away.

If Chicago is your city of destination this Easter, our Chicago limo service friends at Pontarelli have published a blog that we believe you will find interesting. The article presents various events, both old and new, that help you celebrate Easter in Chicago.
