Hawaii is a near-perfect honeymoon or anniversary destination, of course, but the Aloha State can actually be fun with the kids, too. Logistically, it’s a breeze, allowing you to delve into a unique culture and landscape without having to juggle everyone’s passports, go through customs, or deal with currency exchanges. Kids also provide a constant excuse to get out there and try something you never would if it was just you and your significant other.
Any of the four major islands (Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island) have countless resort options ready to welcome your brood with an all-inclusive type of experience, but it’s also easy to create an itinerary yourself, tailored exactly for your family. Here, you’ll find a starting off point to give you ideas on where to stay, dine, and find adventures that are just a bit off the beaten path.
Hawaiian Airlines offers the most flights from the mainland and between each island, but they also partner with JetBlue, American, and United in point sharing. Other airlines, such as Alaska, American, Delta, United, Virgin America, Allegiant, and WestJet also offer relatively frequent nonstop flights from most major cities across the western U.S.
