Easter is in less than one month and families may want to consider spending the holiday at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside of Washington D.C. The resort is offering a ton of sweet fun in partnership with everyone’s favorite Easter candy – PEEPS! From scavenger hunts to kid-friendly spa treatments, plus an overnight package, kids and parents will be hopping around the hotel with excitement.
Visit the resort between March 21 and April 4, and enjoy a free PEEPS scavenger hunt during your stay. The fluffy marshmallow treats will be hidden across the entire 1.5-acre atrium and lobby area. All guests who complete the challenge will receive a free treat from the PEEPS and Company store. Additionally, families can enter to win a giant stuffed PEEP chick or bunny.
On March 21 to 22, and April 4 to 5, families visiting the resort can enjoy relaxing spa treatments together at the Relache Spa and Salon. Children ages 5 to 10 are invited to enjoy manicures and pedicures with special PEEPS scented nail polishes. Kids will also take home a PEEPS nail polish kit after the treatment. Manicures cost $35 and pedicures cost $45.
If visiting Easter weekend, choose from two brunches in celebration of the holiday. Both brunches are available between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 5.
The first is a rooftop feast at the resort’s 18th floor Pose Rooftop Lounge with breakfast items, seafood displays, prime rib, leg of lamb and other delicacies on offer. The PEEPS Chick mascot will make an appearance for photos with little ones, too. Rates start from $66 for adults and children ages 12 and older, and from $32 for children ages 3 to 11 years. Reservations are recommended.
