If you’re coming to Anna Maria Island to rent a vacation home during the Easter season, you may still want to take some time to celebrate the holiday away from home.
One of the most family and community-oriented ways to do this is through an Easter egg hunt. Children love to experience egg hunts during this holiday season, so you can keep that classic family tradition even when you are on vacation!
