Easter Sunday is April 5, and some of my favorite memories as a child were having an Easter egg hunt in the backyard. In fact, you can do an Easter egg hunt just about anywhere. They're always fun. So, if you don't mind traveling a little ways down the road, Daisy State Park is the ideal place to take the kids.Check out these Easter Egg Hunts at Daisy State Park.
