Around 10 years ago, my family volunteered to be bumped off our flight during Christmas and in exchange we received airline credit. The credit was just enough to pay for our family to fly to Hawaii that summer, and so started an annual family tradition!

My family has been lucky enough to visit Hawaii many times over the last few years, so I decided to put together a list of just some of my favorite things to do while visiting. I hope you have the chance to visit beautiful Hawaii, and I hope you enjoy these activities (especially the food ones!) as much as I do!

What to pack:



var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-33695057-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

(function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + ''; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

    Aw, such good karma! Hawaii is so beautiful. I've only been there twice, but the snow cones are what I remember the most, besides the beach! Such a lovely tradition for your family :)xx, Diane ||

    Such a great annual family trip! Looks so beautiful and laid back over there! We're actually considering Hawaii for the honeymoon, so I might have some questions 😃 . It's a bit far and pricey for us but hopefully we can make it work. Looks like you've done some great travelling recently. That's great! You deserve some relaxation and fun.
