In the last 25 years I’ve been fortunate enough to have been able to visit Hawaii numerous times. My grandmother grew up on the Big Island so we have always had family there. This month we went over for what will probably be the last time, at least for a few years. I’ve spent a bit of time thinking about all the wonderful experiences and places we’ve been able to visit and wanted to share a scrapbook of sorts with everyone.
So, here it is, my personal “best of” Hawaii…complete with a few experiences and places that aren’t around anymore, some kid friendly ideas, and of course, some embarrassing childhood photos!
Hawaii aka The Big Island
It wouldn’t be right to not start with Hawaii. The majority of the family we have left in Hawaii live here and we’ve spent the most time on this island. Since I’ve spent so much of my time visiting here it’s hard to narrow down the best of the best so here are a few of the things we just can’t seem to miss.
In addition to the things we visit each time we go, we’ve been able to experience lots of other amazing things.
All the years and all the memories with my family, there are so many more adventures to be had. Every time someone asks me if I ever get tired of vacationing in Hawaii I start by reminding them that we don’t vacation, we take trips and then tell them I could visit Hawaii for every trip I ever made. There’s no way to ever soak it all in.
