    Things to do on the North Shore, Oahu

    Aloha! Are you heading to Oahu soon? You’ll definitely want to schedule in time on the beautiful North Shore. While it is known for its big waves (perfect for surfers), there are several other incredible things to do on the North Shore of Oahu. Our family of 3 recently spent time on the North Shore as part of our trip to the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu, and we loved every minute.

    Things to do on the East Shore, Oahu

    Aloha! After spending one week on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu, our family can safely say that the East Shore (Windward) is our favorite part of the island! The region is packed with things to do and see, including beautiful beaches (that are especially family-friendly), fun activities, and stunning landscapes, making it the perfect place to settle if you would like to explore beyond Honolulu/Waikiki. We stayed in the beautiful town of Kailua, which was a great destination for exploring the East Shore. In order to get the most out of your stay on Oahu, I highly recommend renting a car. When we compared driving in Hawaii to other…

    Traveling to Scotland with a Toddler or Baby

    We recently went on our first international adventure together as a family of three, and my husband and I can honestly say that we loved traveling to Scotland with a toddler (or a baby- she was just over one year old).
