Description

We had so much fun on our recent trip to Oahu! I’ve personally been to the island twice in my life and every time I leave I feel like I could spend so much more time there and not see everything the island has to offer! Because we love Oahu so much, I’ve created a bucket list of all the family-friendly places and activities our family wants to see and do if we ever (hopefully) get to go back.

*A note about the restaurants on this list. We ONLY include restaurants that are kid-friendly. Meaning that they have a kids menu, their atmosphere is kid-friendly and they welcome kids into their establishment. This is a family-centered blog, so we do not include local bars/taverns on our list for that reason.
