We are bringing a 10 year and wondering what, if any, celebrations happen for Easter weekend? I understand Friday and Monday are holidays, but are there egg hunts (that might get smelly in the heat!), chocolate would melt, etc. Of course there is plenty other stuff to do and we will be busy, but just checking.

Re: Recon Mission - 3 years ago
sorry if i didn't give enough info.....we have already lined up a few job interviews and house rentals (those things seem easy to plan online) but want to get to know the "real" STX activities and that seems a little more covert and underground. we are late 40's, kids are grown, we are very athletic and outdoorsy, love the water and are wanting to get a boat for snorkeling, diving, skiby veejay - General/Relocating
Recon Mission - 3 years ago
