Hawaii with Travel Mom Jacquie
Jacquie, husband Elliot and their two boys (13 and 15 years old) adventured to Hawaii this summer spending time on Maui and Oahu. We sat down with Jacquie to hear all about it and get her itinerary, tips, and tricks for you!
How long was your trip?
We went for 8 days total to Maui (“The Valley Isle,” second-largest Hawaiian island) and Oahu (“The Gathering Place,” third largest island) with 3 days on each island. We also had two days of travel and the 40-minute flight between the islands.
What made you pick these places?
It’s a bucket list trip for me and Elliot and our first time to Hawaii. Our boys, 13 and 15, could also appreciate and enjoy it.
How did you find the information for your trip?
- I used our travel agent for hotels and flights.
- Adventure Maui has tons of information and you can book excursions through them too.
- Oahu was mostly word of mouth from friends.
What was the BEST part of the trip for you?
Family time and time away from the routine. Also, going to Pearl Harbor and taking the kids to a place where they can visualize history.
What was the BEST part of the trip for the family?
The UTV Tour of Kualoa Ranch where Jurassic Park was filmed. It has an insane landscape and the boys in toys in mud was fun for everyone.
