By Aimee Heckel
This year, the Easter Bunny is bringing more than just chocolate eggs. He’s hooking you up with some great travel deals around Easter time. The holiday is April 20 this year.
Here are some of the top Easter travel deals for 2014, and how to save even more money on your spring travels.
1. Fly to San Francisco and witness the famous Union Street Spring Celebration and Easter Parade, named one of the top Easter celebrations in the nation. Complete with rides, games, a petting zoo, live music and self-propelled mini floats, you would expect nothing less from a city like San Francisco. Word is, this “biggest little parade” even includes roller-blading cows. Take that, Easter Bunny!
Score cheap tickets to San Fran through Priceline.com’s special Easter sale. Fly Chicago to San Francisco for $318 roundtrip.
2. Hunt for Easter eggs on the White House lawn in Washington, D.C. Every year, the White House invites thousands of kids (and their families) to join the free Easter Egg Roll. Afterward, enjoy live music and other entertainment. On Monday, swing by the National Zoo for another free special event.
Cheapflights.com has inexpensive tickets to Washington, D.C. right now, starting at $218 roundtrip from Chicago to the nation’s capital.
3. Celebrate the fashionable side of Easter in New York (hello, Easter dresses!) with the Easter Parade and Bonnet Festival on Fifth Avenue. This creative, outlandish and sometimes elegant tradition dates back to the 1870s. Even if you don’t have a fancy bonnet to don (because it’s not 1870 anymore, so who has a closet of bonnets?), the people-watching here is top-notch. What else would you expect from NYC?
