Best Spots In Ottawa To Enjoy This Fun Easter Tradition

The Easter egg hunt is as ubiquitous as the Easter Bunny itself. Who doesn’t love a Sunday morning romp through slowly awakening gardens or even just through the house in search of yummy treats to fill your basket?

While a home-based Easter egg hunt is always fun, even more fun is finding an organized outing of hidden sugary treasures to enjoy. With that in mind, we’ve hunted out several egg hunt options up to and including Easter Sunday.

So, hop to it!
