Family vacation to Hawaii - where to start?

Jump to last reply

Hi,

We're considering a family vacation to Hawaii in the next 12 months, but I don't even know where to start planning, so I'm hoping for some helpful advice to point us in the right direction.
Here's the vital stats:
Family of 6 (Wife and I, kids 17, 13, 12, 9). We'd like to spend 7-10 days.

things we're interested in:
Beach time
golf
seeing a volcano
a bit of history (especially Pearl Harbor, the Arizona Memorial and the Missouri)
local culture
Wildlife/sea-life
My oldest daughter is also studying Japanese, so anything regarding Japanese heritage in Hawaii would be fun, too.

At this point, I'm looking for places to stay, which type of accommodation (hotel, resort, vacation rental) and any other advice to point us in the right direction. I'm also looking for estimates on possible costs, which has been tough to research given the size of our family. So, any advice would be greatly appreciated. thanks!
