Also my son loved all the boats and it was interesting to point out the ambulance boat.. and the police boats!

Ted’s bakery. Such delicious food and desserts!

What are the best things to do in Honolulu?

Kualoa ranch and Polynesian cultural center

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Honolulu?

If you have a picky eater definitely stop at local store or target to get some of their favorite snacks/foods. Although you can find similar quick bites in Honolulu, it’s not always at every corner like it is on the mainland (states). Definitely pack a light jacket if going during rainy season, the high winds can make it feel a few degrees colder however will not always last all day. Pack some good grip sneakers if planning on sight seeing, not every location is paved and some can be easy to fall for younger kids.
