The most common Easter Egg Hunts in California are for kids, and they involve a basket to hold your booty, a field where the eggs and candy is scattered, and the word, "Go!" Variations on the theme become more fun for adults who aren't limited to participation only if they have children or grandchildren. Lots of creative marketers out there realize that big kids want to have fun, too, so now you can celebrate without being too big. We've found a few train rides and tram tours that make Easter "child's play" for the kid in you.
1. Felton - Roaring Camp Eggstraodinary Egg Hunt April 23 & 24,2011. Take the steam engine train to Bear Mountain where there's an Egg Hunt and story-telling for children. However, as adults, we've taken this train ride and would go on it just to enjoy the cool ride through redwood forests. Just be sure to like kids when you go because there will be lots of them. Felton is located near Santa Cruz.
2. Fillmore - Easter Brunch (and Bunny) Train April 24,2011 takes guests through the scenic Heritage Valley in Ventura County where the scent of orange and lemon blossoms fill the air while guests dine and mingle with the Easter Bunny.
