Hawaii in december

We are thinking of surprising our kids with a trip to Hawaii from Santa! What island would you recommend to visit during December-Jan? We would like to visit somewhere preferably a little less windy and still somewhat warm!!!

How many nights of paid accomodation do you have for this trip?

What are the kids' general ages? Toddlers, active teens?

How many kids?

December-Jan is just peak season and you will be running into premium rates for flights, hotels/condos, and rental cars.

Welcome to TripAdvisor, Kamie!

I'm afraid that YOU might be the one getting a surprise. You are planning very, very, very late. Prices will be high and availability tight. And you don't know where you want to go - so making a wise choice ... the odds are slim.

If you can go into the middle or late January, your situation would be better somewhat.

How many kids?

How many nights?

Any idea of your nightly accomodations budget?

You will need a car on any of the major Islands with the exception of the City of Honolulu on the Island of Oahu. And you need to reserve that car ASAP ... or you may not get a car at all.

It sounds like a wonderful surprise ... how about Christmas 2014?

At this point, the weather would be the least of my worries.

Pick up a copy of "Hawaii for Dummies," a highly-recommended travel guide that covers all the Islands. And get a good map. Pull up www.gohawaii.com. It's terribly commercial, but helpful for first-timers.

Take a look at the Top Questions on this page and read the Summary of Each Island for a quick overview.

Hi Kamie, We are also thinking of a very last minute trip to Hawaii too. Did you get any good feedback? Are you still going at Christmas

Harper, as you can see - we never heard back from Kamie. Whether she's moved on - or reality struck ... I don't know.

But if you have questions, start your own thread/make your own initial post. You don't want to hi-jack Kamie's thread ... and you'll get better responses as well.

And Harper, there is no hometown, state or even country on your profile. This information helps us a great deal.
