Easter falls early in 2013, on Sunday March 31; many schools have at least a four-day weekend break, some stretch it out for a week, and for some schoolkids the long weekend supersizes their Spring Break. It's all a good chance for a getaway and families are likely to find Easter Egg Hunts and other fun wherever they go. Some cities have famous events, such as the Easter Parade in NYC or the annual Egg Roll at the White House in Washington DC. But most any city will have Easter egg hunts -- or maybe an egg safari, or a Rabbit Romp --at children's museums, zoos, and other local attractions. Tourist railroads make the most of the occasion as well, running a special Easter Bunny Express or even a Peanuts-themed Easter Beagle Express.
