Spring Break Staycation in Albuquerque

Spring Break StaycationSpring break is coming soon (March 28th -April 1st) and if you are planning a Spring Break Staycation in Albuquerque there are lots of options. I love the benefits of a staycation. It’s far less costly. When you travel you need to consider lodging, transportation, dining, local attractions, and before you know it your 7 day vacation with air-fare is well over $5,000 for a family of 4. Not to mention the added stress traveling can bring.

Spring Break Staycation in Albuquerque  benefits our economy, our local businesses and benefits you, the consumer by saving you money.

With my list, there will be no need to allow your kids to experience boredom with a Staycation in Albuquerque . I have a brief summary of a few day camps for just the children, and a few ideas for the whole family.

Chick-fil-A®

In the midst of all the business if you are not in the mood to cook dinner, have Chick-fil-A® cook for you.  Every Tuesday and Thursday they host family night and your children can learn, do a craft win prizes and have fun. Here is what’s going on the week of Spring break

Tuesday March 29th at Paseo & Del Norte
Play Place Egg Hunt*  5:30-7:30pm

Last but not least Here are a few quick Ideas to do here in Albuquerque or nearSpring Break Staycation In Albuquerque

  • Rail Runner $1 One Way After 1 p.m. Every Saturday in March Great thing about this time, one can schedule it after their young ones nap.
  • Camp in your backyard. So much more easier than packing for real camping.
  • Create a treasure hunt in or outside your home. I have fond memories with my neighbor, she would come over with her grandson and create a treasure hunt with clues for all the kids. Fun to see them use their creative minds to figure out the answer to the clues and get the treasure.
  • The land of Fire and Ice. Maybe you have heard of this, maybe you haven’t. Either way, it’s a place to put on your list for a family trip. Rates for adults age 13 and up $12. Children 6-12 $6.oo Trails Will Be Open 9 – 5

What are you doing this Spring Break? Staycation or Vacation?
