Aloha! We will be in Oahu for a week in mid September (Wed. - Wed.). I am working during the weekdays, but my wife and 3 kids (ages 6, 3, and barely 1) will be along for vacation. On Friday, my wife's sister will join us as well. My work is in the Pearl City area, but we are staying at the Embassy Suites in Waikiki. I may ask separately about our planned weekend itinerary, but for now a few questions about the weekdays:
1. We arrive on Wed. at just past noon. Unfortunately, I then have to go to work for half a day, and we will not be able to head to Waikiki and check into the hotel until afterwards. We need to find some fun, safe things for the family to do while I am at work, preferably in the Pearl City area or somewhere between the airport and there. They will not have a car (I will drop them off somewhere on the way to work), and my sister-in-law will not be there yet, so my wife will be alone with the 3 kids. Any suggestions?
2. Similar question for the remaining weekdays, when the family will be in Waikiki while I go to work. Sure, they'll go to the beach a lot, but what else should they consider doing? Things they can do with the kids and no car.
3. OK, what about after work? What are some things we should consider in the evenings after I get "home" around 5? Obviously not time for a day trip, but I'd still like to have some fun and see some sites, if possible.
