The Best Things To Do In Honolulu With Kids

Last Updated on

Oahu is a perfect family vacation destination. You’ll never run out of activities when you visit Honolulu with kids.  Honolulu is the capital of Hawaii and is on the south shore.

Polynesian Cultural Center – explore the heritage of the Pacific Islands at this 42 acre theme park and living museum. Participate in an authentic Polynesian luau and watch their award-winning show, “Hā: Breath of Life.” It’s an unforgettable experience that the whole family will enjoy.

Waimea Bay Beach Park – Waimea is famous for its 30-foot waves in the winter and is a top place to watch some of the world’s best and bravest surfers. During summer, the water calms considerably and is a great destination for swimming, snorkeling and diving.

Hanauma Bay State Park – Go early (the preserve opens at 6 a.m. year round) because when the parking lot is full, visitors are turned away at the entrance.

  1. That’s a great list of things to do in Honolulu with kids. If the kids are older, I’d also suggest the USS Arizona Memorial and Bishop Museum. Though there’s really so much to do on Oahu that it’s tough to pick and choose!
