Family Memberships Worth Having in the Albuquerque Area


Finding the perfect birthday or holiday gift can be tough, especially in this day and age when big box stores are literally at our fingertips. Our family has not escaped the inevitable surplus of toys that seem to multiply beyond control after every celebratory event.

Our family’s solution: experience gifts. An experience gift is not a material gift, rather an experience that your loved one can enjoy, such as an ice cream shop gift card, movie tickets, or zoo and museum memberships. With this small change, we’ve been able to experience quite a few memberships in Albuquerque as a family.

Here is a list of some of our favorite family-friendly places that offer memberships that are totally worth it!
