Planning a Hawaii vacation can be a daunting task, even for solo travelers. There are so many options for accommodations, dining, and activities that it can be hard to make sense of it all. On today’s Hawaii Vacation Connection podcast, we’ll be talking about planning a family vacation, and all of the things to consider to keep the whole family happy.
The most important thing to consider when planning a family vacation in Hawaii is what you want to get out of it. Whether it’s plenty of beach time, taking in cultural sites, or a food-centric stay, bringing the kids along is easier than you might think.
Fortunately, many Hawaii hotels and resorts offer programs for kids of all ages. From hula lessons to arts and crafts, from ocean safety and education to native Hawaiian cultural experiences, there are lots of exciting things for the keiki to learn and experience during a Hawaii vacation.
Properties like Disney’s Aulani in West Oahu are geared toward family vacations with a variety of activities and educational programs to fascinate and entertain curious little ones. Other large properties like Hilton Hawaiian Village also offer similar children’s programming.
We podcast about Hawaii because we love Hawaii.
There are some important tips we’ll offer as well. For example, if you are travelling to Hawaii with small children, it’s safest to only go to beaches monitored by City & County Ocean Safety Lifeguards. Always be sure to visit with a lifeguard and let them know you’re at the beach with children. Lifeguards are more than happy to educate beachgoers about safety. It’s easier for lifeguards to keep and eye on beachgoers young and old when they’ve met them face-to-face. Hawaii has the best lifeguards in the world, and they love their job.
Just organizing a trip to the grocery store can be a challenge with small children. Planning a Hawaii family vacation presents its own challenges, but on this week’s podcast we’ll help make sure you know what to expect, and how to get the most of your family’s dream Hawaii vacation.
