Located on the sun-kissed shores of Southern California, Marina del Rey is a top destination for leisure and relaxation. With a stunning coastline, pristine beaches, and a popular waterfront scene, it’s no wonder that Easter in this Los Angeles area gem is a “can’t-miss” experience full of “egg-citing” things to do!

One of the benefits of celebrating Easter in Marina del Rey is the abundance of outdoor activities. An area famous for its beautiful weather, why wouldn’t you want to celebrate enjoying the ideal climate?  Families flock to the sandy shores for picnics and barbeques, beach games, and strolls along the water’s edge. But if you’re looking for specific festivities to partake in, look no further.


Egg Hunts and Easter Fun in Southern California

On Saturday, March 30th, 2024, from 10:00am to 1:00pm, you can enjoy crafts and craft vendors, Easter Bunny visits, food trucks, live music, and an inflatable obstacle course at this free event that the whole family will love. Leading up to the Easter Eggstravaganza, there’s also The Big Egg Hunt from March 23rd through March 29th where visitors can hunt for giant eggs for a chance to win some amazing prizes.

In the mood for a fun day out on the town? Hit up Downtown Santa Monica Celebrates Easter! On Sunday, March 24th, 2024, from 12:00pm to 4:00pm, you’ll be able to celebrate the Easter season at Third Street Promenade in nearby Santa Monica where there will be fun, games, and free pictures with the Easter Bunny!

Looking for something out of the ordinary? Well, in the spirit of Easter, what better way to celebrate the Easter Bunny than by hopping on over to The Bunny Museum. According to the Los Angeles Almanac, “The Bunny Museum has been featured in, among others, Guinness World Records, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Smithsonian Magazine, and an episode of Visiting with Huell Howser. It has been widely reviewed by travel writers, domestic and international. Although some describe the museum as “weird” or “bizarre,” the Los Angeles Almanac found it no more so than L.A.’s flourishing contemporary art scene, the iconic Watts Towers or, for that matter, Disneyland. These, like The Bunny Museum, were born from the passion of their creators and opened for the enjoyment of others.”
