'Egg'-cellent Activities, Giant Whales, and Skate Day
March 22-24

Kid-friendly museums

Leave it to Mother Nature to keep us on our toes. Wednesday marked the first official day of spring, yet we had snow the Monday before. Here's to hoping the weather forecast holds up this weekend so we can enjoy all the fun egg hunts, furry animal events, and more on brisk, 45-degree days.

If that's too chilly, refer to our guide of kid-friendly museums forsome indoor fun. And, as always, scroll down to see our top weekend picks for you and your kids!
