Alamo rent a carHave you ever built a snowman made of sand? Or watched a New Year’s Eve fireworks show from the beach?

Spending the holidays in Hawaii is a one-of- a-kind experience! I’ve spent many holiday seasons in Hawaii. I love the island-style twist for Christmas in the tropics.

Here are my top picks for the most popular islands in Hawaii. Updated Nov 21, 2018!

Family Travel with Little Kids

As 2017 is coming to a close, I’ve started to look back on this year. That’s what people do this time of year, right? We spent our first full year at our new home and have established great friendships with many of our neighbors. My oldest started preschool this fall. My youngest transitioned from a newborn to a young toddler. But what stands out the most in 2017 involves our family travel.

What is Warehouse 3540?

Located in Lawai on the island of Kauai, Warehouse 3540 features trendy shops, food trucks, and shave ice. As the name implies, it’s located in a warehouse and has a bit of a Portland hipster vibe.

Had my Mom (who lives on Kauai) not told me about it, I wouldn’t have even known to stop. If you’re looking for things to do in Kauai, Warehouse 3540 is the place to be!

“Are we going to ride the Kilohana Plantation Railway train today?” This is a question my 3.5-year-old has asked me nearly every day for the past year.

My Mom lives on Kauai and took my oldest there for a special trip after my youngest was born. They rode on the train several times during the trip and it was the ultimate experience for him.

I’ve been drooling over the menu at Maui’s Feast at Lele for the past decade. My friend had her destination wedding reception there years ago and it sounded beyond amazing! She said it was one of the best luaus in Maui.

We hadn’t had an opportunity to getaway much on our past trips to Maui, except for our Babymoon Date Night at Roy’s.

Choosing the right travel stroller for family travel can be tough. I feel like I’m constantly combing the Internet looking for a lightweight stroller that is durable yet easy to maneuver.

I’m often traveling with just my kids and I need a stroller that I can push with one hand while hauling luggage with the other hand.

My husband’s family loves to travel together. It’s how they like to bond, connect and make memories. It’s a lot of fun and we’ve been able to see a lot of fun places and share stories from our trips. So, when we found out earlier this year that everyone was heading to Maui for the 4th of July, we were disappointed to miss out. You see, I was newly pregnant with a history of pregnancy complications and the threat of Zika was widespread. We just didn’t want to risk traveling to a tropical area.

My husband, Darren, and I had the opportunity to meet up with 15 family members on Maui this summer. We went with our toddler, Owen, while I was 6 months pregnant. My Mom lives on Kauai, so I’ve been there many, many times (and a few times solo with Owen.) I explored Maui last October with Owen, but this was the first time Darren was able to join us for a Hawaii trip. We stayed up in Ka`anapali, which was a first for me.

While vacationing on Maui, my Mom popped over from her home on Kauai to visit with us for a few days. She offered to watch our toddler, Owen, so we could have a date night. When someone offers to watch your toddler, the answer is always YES. After scrolling through several “Best Restaurants on Maui” listings online, cruising Front Street in Lahaina, and debating driving to Kihei, we decided to see if we could get in at Roy’s in Ka`anapali. Roy’s is a chain of Hawaiian fusion restaurants that are located on several islands. I’d only been to the one on Kauai before and the food was really tasty. Since we get so few date nights, we figured we’d go with something almost guaranteed to be a good experience.

Are you wondering if you should even try to take your toddler to Maui by yourself? There’s so many things to do in Maui with toddlers that it’s understandably appealing.

I’ve done it and I’m here to share what I learned from this experience.
