Looking to enjoy an Easter getaway this year? Head to Scottsdale for an exciting vacation with plenty to do! Read on to see the top ways to celebrate Easter in Scottsdale, AZ.

Sunday Family Brunch

One of the best activities for you to do with your friends or family this upcoming holiday is to go out for brunch. Not only can you spend quality time with your loved ones chatting about important topics and sharing stories, but you can also eat mouthwatering food that is going to put you in a great mood for the rest of the day! You might have worked up a hefty appetite, especially if you went on an Easter egg hunt before.

Firstly, we recommend going to the Easter Brunch At the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess. This famous event brings in people from all over the state to book a spot at this upscale event, featuring food and dishes from the resort’s high-end signature restaurants. You can enjoy tantalizing dishes, order an Easter basket delivery to your table, book an Easter floral table delivery, and partake in the Easter Egg hunt with your kids.

Next, the Sanctuary at Camelback Mountain offers a three-course option that will keep you full all day. You will love the mouthwatering treats here, including fresh produce, savory seafood, and sweet treats that can help curb any cravings. Order the caramel monkey apple bread with pecans and granny smith apples to split with the table to start the meal. Then, try the shishito peppers with soy caramel for a little kick!

Lastly, El Chorro Lodge churns out plate after plate of mouth-watering dishes that are truly unforgettable, but we think that booking a table here for Easter brunch is the best way to take your time, try all of the fresh ingredients, and enjoy the upscale ambiance. We personally love the El Chorro sticky buns and croissants for the table, paired with a bottle of champagne and a carafe of orange juice for making your own mimosas.

You can’t go wrong with the huevos rancheros with charro beans, chorizo, cotija cheese, and tri-color tortillas for a main dish. Another great breakfast dish is the authentic Noble Bread French toast with praline honey butter and fresh berries.

Easter Bunny Pictures

After brunch, or before you have a huge plate of eggs and a few mimosas, it might be best to plan your trip to see the Easter bunny so your kids can take pictures with this magical creature. The good thing is that there are many spots in Scottsdale where you can hunt for easter eggs, gather chocolate, earn prizes, and take pictures with the fluffy bunny to keep for your scrapbook.

Head to the Scottsdale Fashion Square Palm Court to take pictures with the Easter Bunny through April 8th. Make sure you book a slot in advance to avoid the long lines and keep the day moving. Another fun spot to go for an Easter egg hunt is the Scottsdale Quarter Hide and Peep Scavenger Hunt. Try your luck finding eggs, search for Easter eggs, and partake in face painting from local artists.

Easter Bunny Express

Hop aboard the Easter Bunny Express at the Verde Canyon Railroad to wind through the cool amusement parks, talk with the train conductor, and see your kids’ faces light up at this incredible attraction that is only in Scottsdale! This long train ride is perfect for those who want something to do in the afternoon after going for a relaxing brunch with their family.

Not only can you hop on and off this cool train ride through Verde Canyon, but your kids can test their math skills in the jellybean counting game and take photos with the Easter bunny, who takes a ride on the trail with the guests.


Do you still have time in the day to continue celebrating this holiday with your kids? Well, suppose your kids aren’t tired just yet. In that case, we recommend going to Bonanza at the Scottsdale Civic Center to see this old-school Western event that includes live music from local country music artists, entertainment that will keep your kids engaged, and egg hunts to find sweet treats. You can even have a few mimosas in the mimosa garden!

Taliesin West for Easter in Scottsdale

Lastly, check out the home for the Holidays Celebration: Spring Celebration at the famous Taliesin West. Suppose you are an architecture lover, or you appreciate the culture and history of this bustling city. In that case, we recommend visiting this breathtaking structure created by the famous Frank Lloyd Wright.
