Where to Find the Easter Bunny in Greater Boston
The Easter Bunny, in the weeks leading up to Easter (on April 20 this year), keeps as busy as Santa in December. We’ve tracked down some of the places in the Boston area where kids can hop on in, dressed in their Easter finest, to meet the Easter Bunny and get their pictures taken, play some games or share a meal with him. Depending on the activity, only professional photographers may be permitted to take pictures, but be sure to bring your camera for great photo ops just in case!
And for more Easter activities, please check out our listing of Easter Egg Hunts in Boston for some ideas.
