We are planning a trip with our family next year. Five adults and two children will be 5 & 7 at the time of travel. The concern is, will the children be able to do the hiking, snorkeling etc. We are looking at a Luau but have been told by adults that have recently visited Hawaii, the children may not hold up to these things. From what I see, I think taking the kids at this age will be fine. Another concern is the long plane trip (coming from Gulf Coast of Florida) We are not interested in the adult only nightlife. We plan on renting a condo at a resort, going to Diamond Head, Submarine tour, Pearl Harbor, USS Missouri, Dole Pineapple tour, beaches, and would like to see a waterfall etc. Parents really want to come, but are concerned with one adult having to hold back with the little one. We have taken several vacations in the past and the kids are very adaptable. We try to make sure we have activities that interest everyone, but the main concern is spending this type of money and not being able to truly see Hawaii.
