Top 10 Tips For Your Hawaii Vacation


We had the best vacation in Oahu, Hawaii this past April. The kids loved Oahu and all of the beautiful beaches. I'm going to share with you my top 10 tips for planning your own Hawaiian Vacation.

  1. Plan, plan plan! Save websites to your "favorites" tab on your computer. Start researching using www.TripAdvisor.com and www.gohawaii.com 
  2. Make a list of all of the activities and attractions you would like to do. 
  3. Create a daily plans document for each day of your vacation. We had 10 days on Oahu so I had a detailed plan for each of those 10 days. The travel days simply included things like get a cab, get groceries, go to dinner, etc. Take the list of things you would like to do and add it into your daily plans. 
  4. Don't try to do to much each day. Be sure to allow time each day to relax, enjoy the pool, beach, etc.
  5. Before you book your flights shop around! Compare prices. We booked our flights directly by calling United Airlines. I wanted to be 100% sure that my 3 kids would be seated beside myself and my husband. 
  6. Book your hotel or condo before you book your flight. This is the most important aspect of your vacation. 
  7. Book dinner reservations online ahead of time
  8. If this will be your kids first time to fly show them a YouTube video of the inside of an airplane to prepare them for what it will be like. 

  9. Check websites like www.groupon.com for deals on attractions
  10. Remember to have fun and be flexible! Don't worry if something on your list doesn't happen on the exact day you had planned. One of the days we were in Oahu it rained and we switched our plans. We also had made a 'backup plan' for rainy days. Our rainy day plans included going to an aquarium or seeing a movie.
