Hello, my husband and three-year-old son and I are planning a 1-week trip to Maui in early September. This will be our first vacation with your son (or at all), so we would like it to be enjoyable. We are planning a direct flight to minimize travel stress on our son.
I was wondering if anyone could provide us advice on:
(1) Where to stay
(2) Toddler-friendly outings
My son is not a big hiker (he can walk short distances only and then will ask us to carry him). He enjoys beaches (particularly playing in the sand rather than swimming), marine life and other animals. He is too little to snorkel or really even go in waves. Our budget is that of a middle-class family. We will likely rent a car, but proximity of activities is important to keep the little man happy.
Would appreciate any advice! We are considering a vacation rental rather than a hotel, but are considering both.
