1. Easter Celebration at The Cincinnati Zoo
What’s cuter than watching animals play with colored eggs and Easter baskets? Not much, actually. Your kids will love searching the zoo for Easter eggs, taking pictures with the Easter bunny, and stopping at the treat and activity stations all around the zoo. Keep an eye out for the special “Golden Eggs” hidden throughout the zoo. If you find one, turn it in to the Welcome Center and claim a prize!
