Easter Egg Hunt San Diego North County (Guide)

What’s Easter without the competition of running across a grassy field and swooping up as many colored plastic eggs as possible before the kid next to you grabs theirs? That’s pretty far from the original meaning of Easter, but it might be one of the most common Easter memories for many children that have grown up and now need to provide the same tradition for their own kids.

It’s time to put on those adorable pastel outfits and hop on over to one of these fun Easter Egg hunts around North County.
