Happy Easter from the Florida Travel Guide

Looking for some ideas about what to do today in Florida? Allow us to make some suggestions!

Pack a picnic

If you’re on a budget, start a new family Easter tradition! Pack an extra Easter basket and pack your family into the car in a hunt for the perfect picnic spot. There’s no shortage of them in Florida, from natural parks and beaches to botanical gardens. Fill your basket with your favorite snacks and treats – an Easter theme would be fun! Try our Easter bread and some chocolate bunnies. Most parks in Florida are open until dusk today so why not bring along some toys and games and make it a day-long event so you can end it by watching the sunset together?

Splurge on Easter Sunday Brunch

If money’s no object, take your family out for a memorable Easter Sunday Brunch at The Ritz-Carlton Fort Lauderdale. Feast on slow-roasted prime rib, honey glazed ham, roasted grouper and mashed potatoes. Create-your-own-pasta station, eat caviar, crepes, lavish desserts and imported cheese. Also, there will be Mimosas!

Save on Easter Sunday Brunch

Scrambled eggs and breakfast potatoes with country sausage links and applewood smoked bacon. Belgian waffles with warm syrup. Omelets, fruit and so much more. That’s just the breakfast station! The Easter Sunday Brunch at Royal St. Cloud is fabulous. Find the details here.

Hunt for eggs

Head to Buccaneer Bay for Weeki Wachee’s Wacky Egg Hunt! Age 0-6 hunts take place in the kiddie pool while kids aged 7-13 will search for eggs on the beachfront. Bring your own baskets! Check out the Weeki Wachee Live Mermaid show while you’re there!

There’s also Egg Hunting fun at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort today!

The unveiling of the Sandestin Foundation for Kids kicks off with the first Jolee Island Bunny Hop and Easter Egg Walk. Have a blast, searching for more than 4000 eggs that are hidden around Jolee Island. Some of them are full of candy, some have toys inside while others may have cash or special prizes! Admission price includes a special t-shirt per family.
