HHV shouldn't be too bad with kids in early Nov, certainly not as bad as two weeks later will be.

Can't really help you on Veteran's Day at Pearl, I think the focus is more at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl.

I was actually in Vancouver for Remembrance Day a few years ago and they did a fly over with planes from every war/era. It was quite cool.

It is possible that Pearl Harbor will be running the special tours -


My friend emailed them a little while back asking if they would be, and got a reply that they were not certain yet but if they do, the tours will appear on the website about a month beforehand.

There are always going to be kids at HHV. There may night be as many kids as during the summer or school breaks, but they will still be there throwing balls and running around with people wondering where their parents are.

I agree. We have traveled every month from September through March, and when at the HHV, there were ALWAYS plenty of kids. I cannot imagine how it would be in the Summer, and would not want to experience that.

The Veteran's Day tickets go fast.

There are usually more veterans present that day.

Sure hope that the USS Arizona and PH is open again by then.

I was just there, and the hotel was busier than I expected for our travel dates. That said, I found it as wonderful and relaxing as the last time I was there. Were there a lot of families? Yes, but honestly I never felt like it was overwhelming or anyone disturbed our vacation. I found everyone to be respectful and in the aloha spirit....even at the paradise pool :-).

I highly recommend HHV due to the beauty of the resort, the large number of things you can do right there, the pools and lagoon in addition to the ocean, and the large beachfront on that end--it is a beautiful area of Waikiki Beach.

Yes when staying at HHV I always use the beach so never was concerned with how busy the pools were... some restaurants like Tropics can have waits for seats. The pools and hot tubs can get crowded.. It never seemed overly busy to me, but crowds rarely bother me.
