Hawaii may be one of the world’s most popular honeymoon locations, but it’s also a popular destination for family vacations. While the ocean and beach combinations are second to none, Hawaii has much more to offer its visitors; especially those traveling with children so we’re dedicating today’s post to highlighting some of Hawaii’s top family attractions!
Sea Life Park
Located on the beautiful island of Oahu, Sea Life Park is an entertaining and interactive adventure for the entire family. Visitors can get up close and personal with rays and sea lions, swim with dolphins, catch the sea turtle feeding, view the shark exhibit and visit the bird sanctuary. Once you’ve had your fill of the marine life, head on over to the Chief’s Luau. Here guests can learn to hula and participate in craft making before making their way to the kid’s play zone.

Wet ‘n’ Wild
Also located on Oahu, Wet ‘n’ Wild is one of the most popular family attractions in Hawaii. With rides ranging from “Chill” to “Extreme”, guests can set the pace that works best for the whole family. You can go for a dip and take a leisurely ride down Lazy River, or channel your inner thrill seeker and plunge from 50 feet up through a 130 ft tube in to a pool below.

Speaking of thrill seekers, Podium Raceway is on another level! This indoor electric Kart raceway can accommodate the entire family with both adult and junior karts available. Speed demons will love the ability to go from 0 – 45 in 3 seconds as they race their way through the quarter mile course. Open 7 days per week, Podium Raceway also offers “Cosmic Racing”. Every night after 6PM, the house lights go down and visitors can test their skills on the glow-in-the-dark course! For more information, click here: http://podiumraceway.com
Located between Diamond Head and Waikiki, the Honolulu Zoo is home to more than 1200 animals spread across 42 acres. From aardvarks to warthogs, and just about everything in between, the zoo allows guests to get a bird’s eye view of some of our planet’s most majestic creatures. The zoo is open from 9 – 4:30, 7 days a week. Learn more here: http://www.honoluluzoo.org
Atlantis Submarine Adventures
With Maui, Waikiki and Kona locations to choose from, Atlantis Submarine will take you and your family on an adventure you won’t soon forget. If you think the islands are beautiful, just wait until you get below the ocean’s surface and see what lies beneath them! A true Eco-Adventure, Atlantis submarines are battery powered and emit no pollution so they don’t disrupt the eco-system of our marine life. From schools of fish to Hawaii’s incredible coral reef and abandoned ship wrecks, Atlantis Submarine Adventures invites guests to explore Hawaii from 100 feet below the surface!

We had a wonderful time at Sail Away and I recommended Hawaii Hideaway to dozens of people. You were a delight to work with and I will definitely use you again the next time we rent a home in the islands.
Like a Dream
Bliss doesn’t even describe our experience. It was almost like a dream. We are ready to do this again with Hawaii Hideaways – you guys are the best. Everything was perfect!!!
Outstanding Experience From Beginning to End
It was in an outstanding experience from beginning to end, I would work with Hawaii hideaways again in the future unquestionably. Sunny Madeiros was terrific with her recommendations of everything from leisure activities to restaurants and even equipment rentals.

Perfect Combination of Elegance and Comfort
First time to Maui (and Hawaii). This is a spectacular setting and the home is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. I could stay on the lanai all day long and be happy. Of course there’s a ton of fun activities, but it was great to have Gull Cottage as our base to come back to!

You’re Going to Want to Stay
Our family spent a splendid week in Kauai in early 2017, basing ourselves out of the Touching Green house. It’s in a great location, has everything you need, and is just lovely. The pictures don’t do it justice. You’re going to want to stay!
We had a wonderful time in Kauai! We remained in awe at the unimaginable beauty, both of the rental home, as well as Kauai itself. It will be a treasured memory for life. I hope we can come back and make more memories.
