Have any of you ever been or heard something from a friend who has? Could you help me out and post here (traveling mommies) (Hawaii) with your tips, tricks and suggestions? I really appreciate it! Thank you in advance for your help!
DH's aunt and uncle just left to go on a trip there. I'm so jealous. But I really don't know much about it, never been and I don't know anyone else who has visited. Sorry hun! But if anyone does have tips/tricks/whatever, I'll be reading them too for a future vacation idea LOL.
My friend Dorothy is stationed there right now, I'll pass her the link and see if she'll join and talk about it.

I went to Oahu almost 2 years ago, at the time we had a 4 month old and a 2 yr. old. We brought our own car seats, I felt better about bringing my own rather than renting one. They were a pain to lug around but not too bad. We brought a DVD player and some chewy candy for the 2 yr. old, the 4 month old just nursed during takeoff and landing. We brought a few new things for the plane ride, just a small toy and some coloring books.
As for the car insurance I have no idea, maybe it is different since you are from Canada? For us, we did not have to purchase car insurance at the rental company because we have full coverage insurance on our vehicle at home and it covers rentals, but should you get in an accident or have a break in, you would still have to pay the deductible. We chose to purchase the additional insurance so that if something happened it would be covered in full since the rate of break ins in high touristy areas is high. But for a full week that was only $100. I would call the particular car rental place you are going through and ask them since it is probably different for Canadian insurance.
We mostly ate just around our hotel, everything was amazing! I don't think we ever ate anything that was less than fabulous.
