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.

It’s true. I have been called a “shave ice snob.” But I don’t apologize for trying to find the best shave ice in Kauai! And my kids definitely don’t complain helping me “research”!

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.

A day at the Polynesian Cultural Center is a MUST while exploring Oahu with kids.

Researching Best Place to Stay in Waikiki for Families
