Don’t have a family reunion this Easter? Escape instead!

For many of us, Easter is a family affair. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc., all reunited around a copious brunch, and everyone enjoys the company. Each year resembles the last. BUT! What if, for whatever reason, there is no family reunion this year? It’s time to make the most of your long weekend.

Take advantage of these few days to plan a romantic escape or a family trip to see something new. Time to get packing! Here are five “Easter Escapade” ideas to try this year.

Easter Escape! 5 Ideas for the Long Weekend.

1. Visit Boston
One of the oldest American cities, Boston has a unique historical charm. Follow the Freedom Trail that snakes 3.2 km through town to relive the early days of the United States with 16 historical halts. The aquarium is also worth a visit; it’s one of America’s nicest. Visit Fenway Park, and try the local specialties.

2. Visit New York
Each year, the Big Apple celebrates Easter in a big way with a parade on 5th Avenue, between 49th and 57th. People are encouraged to wear costumes to celebrate the joys of Easter, and all are welcome. Sunday morning, a huge egg hunt happens in Central Park for those wearing shorts. In New York, there’s never a shortage of things to do!

3. Discover a National Park
No need to go far… Quebec is full of natural beauty and enchanting scenery off the beaten trail. One of the most grandiose spots is the Archipel-de-Mingan National Reserve, in the Côte-Nord region. It features hundreds of geological “monoliths”, over 1,000 small islands, a unique flora, and bird colonies that sometimes have over 50,000 individuals.

4. Louisbourgh Fortress
The Canadian East Coast is also worth a visit; Louisbourgh Fortress, on Cape Breton island in Nova Scotia, is a French colonial construction dating back to 1713. There are 65 main buildings and 20 smaller ones, all of which have been restored to their original appearance. This was the second largest French fortification site in New France, after Quebec City. A unique historical site to discover!

5. Pig out in the Saguenay!
If you’re a foodie, you’ll love this idea! Easter is a great season to visit blueberry country. The region is also renowned for its chocolates, such as the Pères Trappistes. But that’s not all! Saguenay cheeses are among the best in the entire province. This option is high in calories, but even higher in pleasure!
