ABQ Mom Is Your Go-To for Seasonal Resources

When I [Vanessa] moved here 13 years ago, I was so clueless about what there was to do around town. That’s one of the reasons ABQ Mom exists–to make finding family-friendly events and the best local hotspots a breeze.

Every quarter, ABQ Mom publishes a guide to each season. When winter rolls around, we have you covered with the inside scoop on holiday events, cozy cafes, and where to find the best sledding spots for the kiddos. 

Want to discover the best brunch spots in town or who’s hosting egg hunts? Our Ultimate Guide to Spring has you covered. 

During summer, find details about all the local pools, splashpads, free summer movies, and more!

And thanks to ABQ Mom’s Ultimate Guide to Fall, you’ll be in the know about pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and the best places to go see leaves change. 

ABQ Mom’s goal is to unlock a world of family-friendly adventures—because every season is a reason to celebrate!
