One of my favorite activities to do when I travel with my family is to book a vacation photographer.
Not only do we get incredible photos of our entire family in amazing locations, but we also learn a lot of local tips and tricks from our photographer, read more now for tips on how to find the best vacation photographer for your next family adventure!
With so many options, it can be hard to figure out the best luau on Kauai for your family. I’ve been going to the Smith Family Luau for the past 25 years and I’m always impressed with the food, entertainment, and the unbelievably gorgeous grounds!
Have you seen the videos of Kauai mountain tubing that are all over Facebook and Youtube? It’s where people can float down old sugar cane canals on inner-tubes through rock tunnels at the foot of Mt. Waialeale, one of the wettest spots on Earth.
While Maui has the reputation of being a hot spot for honeymoons and babymoons, most of my trips to Maui have included a baby, toddler, or preschooler. I figured I’d gather up my knowledge for this complete guide to Maui with kids!
So, if you are a wanderlusting mama-to-be, you might be wondering when you should take your babymoon. The fact is, you can turn any vacation while pregnant into your babymoon. In fact, you can take several babymoons, if you like.
The main point of a babymoon is to enjoy one last vacation before adding another member to your family. It’s a great time to take some time to focus on your relationship while celebrating the new life you are bringing into this world. Plus, it’s an excuse to take a (probably) much-needed vacation!
When I tell people that I take my kids to Hawaii about once a year, I always explain that my Mom lives on Kauai and we try to cut costs whenever possible. The truth is, a trip to Hawaii (even with kids) doesn’t have to cost and arm and a leg. So, I’ve compiled my top Oahu travel hacks and tips for Oahu on a budget.
I was just looking over my blog and realized I haven’t done a Kauai family travel guide! I’ve visited Kauai approximately 30 times since I was 10 years old. My grandma used to live part-time on Kauai when I was growing up.
My mom has been living on Kauai for the past 10 years. She’s a Kauai wedding officiant and knows a lot of the best Kauai beaches for families and things to do on Kauai with kids.
So, I conferred with her to make sure all my info was up to date and she added in some unique things to do on Kauai.
If you’re looking for things to do in Oahu with kids, the Polynesian Cultural Center should be high on your list. For the past 55 years, it’s been of the most prominent family activities on Oahu. In fact, it’s Hawaii’s number one paid attraction. More than 1 million visitors experience the Polynesian Cultural Center each year. A day at the Polynesian Cultural Center is a MUST while exploring Oahu with kids.
Researching Best Place to Stay in Waikiki for Families
I had the opportunity to meet my Mom on Oahu last month. She lives on Kauai but my in-laws invited me to fly to Oahu with them on a work trip. This meant I didn’t need to fly to Hawaii with kids on my own! The first thing I did was Google the best hotels in Waikiki for families.
Like many of you, I’m spending today reflecting back on 2017. At this time last year, our family was trying to balance a newborn and toddler while settling into our new home. We also were nervous for our first family trip. To say that it was a stressful time would be an understatement!
