Hawaii Family Vacation Tips

hawaiifamilies.jpgAloha! Summer is drawing near and this means that school will be out soon. Summer is an exciting time that for many families means one eight letter word: V A C A T I O N! Many children here in Hawaii have already started their summer vacation. If you are planning or have ever wanted to visit Hawaii, I have some great Hawaii family vacationing tips for visiting the island of Oahu.

When visiting Oahu, Waikiki is a great place to stay with children because everything you need is in walking distance. Some delicious and inexpensive restaurants that are fun for kids as well as adults are: Duke's Canoe Club, Cheeseburger in Paradise, and Tiki's Bar and Grill.

Don't forget to pack your sunscreen and head to Diamond Head early for a short but scenic hike to the top! If you go on Saturday morning, you can have an organic breakfast at Kapiolani Farmer's market at the base of the hike.

Swimming is free and the most popular activity here in Hawaii's crystal blue waters. Surf's up for all who want to try surfing and Waikiki is the spot with surf lessons galore. If you are adventurous and want to check out the colorful tropical reef fish then grab an under water camera and don't miss Haunama bay.

After your exciting day on Oahu don't forget about mom, who is probably tired from packing, unpacking, being a lifeguard to her childen, and a sunscreen apply-er. Treat her to some fabulous Waikiki shopping, afternoon high tea at the Moana SurfRider, or a massage on the beach!

Wherever your travel plans take you, have a safe and sunny time. Don't forget to relax because the fun is in the journey not necessarily the destination, unless we are talking about Hawaii!
