13.55-61 Fun Things To Do For Easter

March 23, 2013

To me Easter since I was a little kid always meant spring was here or around the corner. Going outside playing with a new kite or a balsa wood airplane I got from the Easter Bunny. Over the years going to church, a brunch, Easter Egg hunt with family, or just dinner with family has always been enjoyable. I did find it rough for a number of years going home to Chicago for Easter because I would have to be on the road back by 3pm if I was going to make it back to West Michigan at a decent hour. As an adult, Easter is also the start of the heavy traffic on I-94 between West Michigan and Chicago. Before I share a list of fun things to do on Easter weekend in West Michigan, regardless if you are Christian or not, odds are your kids will have time off from school. Have fun, be safe, and enjoy the time off with friends and family.
