Growing up in Toronto, my beach vacations growing up were usually Florida and The Caribbean. In terms of family travel, from the East Coast there are lots of (mostly direct) flights that are reasonable in length. My husband is from the West, so his beach vacations as a child were usually to California and Hawaii. But now that there are so many flights from where we’re situated, the idea of going there is starting to register – especially since I keep hearing people who’ve been describe it. I’m starting to wonder if it’s worth figuring out what I’m missing!
With eight Hawaiian Islands – but six that you can actually visit – I think I might have a difficult time choosing exactly which island I’d like to visit, so I’d likely want to island hop. In reading the Hawaii trip reports sent in from traveling families, I like that there is such a wide range of accommodation options, and the fact that there is no concern for water safety or adequate medical care. Each island seems to have its own personality, so it’s great that you can have a mix of a more urban atmosphere and city amenities with breathtaking nature and beautiful beaches.
I would love to learn more about Hawaii, and share more stories of traveling there with babies, toddlers, and young children – have you been?
What are your favourite islands? Do you prefer to rent a condo or stay in a hotel? Is it easy to get around with a baby in tow? Please share your experiences and send me an email.
