Spring is definitely cause to celebrate in Marin County. The vibrant wildflowers are in full bloom, and the elusive Easter Bunny will soon make his appearance. 

In anticipation of the Easter season, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite meet-and-greets with the Easter Bunny, scrumptious breakfasts and brunches, and colorful egg hunts. Whether it’s your first Easter in Marin or your 10th, there’s plenty of fun to be had. Get your baskets ready! 


Easter Bunny Brunch

On Easter Sunday, April 12, The Clubhouse at Peacock Gap in San Rafael hosts its traditional Easter brunch and egg hunt for families and friends. The celebratory buffet menu always has some surprises in store, but you can expect a few of the staples like seasonal fresh fruit and freshly baked scones and muffins with whipped butter and housemade preserves. This is a popular spot for families, perfect for a sunny and relaxed visit with the Easter Bunny himself.


Join the Hunt

One of the best ways to celebrate the Easter season is with a good ol’ Easter egg hunt, and you can find them all across Marin County. On Saturday, March 28, Mill Valley Community Center is hosting it's Spring Eggstravaganza! Join Mr. E. Bunny for a breakfast your child will never forget (8:30am-10:30am)! You will dine on a special springtime breakfast, and have a chance to take a photo with Mr. E. Bunny (don’t forget your camera). After breakfast you can follow Mr. E. Bunny out to Friends Field for an Egg Hunt (age-specific hunts start promptly at 10:00am through noon). Purchase your tickets at The Mill Valley Community and Aquatics & Fitness Centers. 


On Saturday, April 11, The Country Mart will host an Easter Celebration and Easter Egg Hunt! The egg hunt starts at 10:30am for ages 3 and under and 10:45am for ages 4 and up. Along with the egg hunts, there will be complimentary photos with the Easter Bunny (10:30am to1:00pm), LIVE animals (chicks & bunnies) for the kids to meet, an Easter art project and egg dying too! Another popular hunt in Larkspur is the Spring Egg Hunt at Piper Park at 10:00am! Join friends and family at this FREE, age-specific, annual, community event! 



Take a Hike

While not necessarily Easter themed, spring is the perfect time to take a hike and reconnect with nature. The Fairway Waterfall, or the Arroyo de San Jose Waterfall, is a great hike for the whole family. The trail is surrounded by lush landscape, and at the end you’ll get a picturesque view of the seasonal waterfall. The hike is short and easy, so most children will find it completely doable.
