Best places to visit in Hawaii with kids

Just wondering what are some good destinations to visit in Hawaii for a children aged 9 and 12 (nearly 13)? We will be travelling there in January 2013.

Thanks

How many nights will you be in Hawaii?

Will you be renting a car?

What do your kids like to do?

Please understand that you are starting your planning process very late. January is a HIGH season.

If you will rent a car, choose Maui - simply because the whales put on quite a show and there is a great diversity in things to see and do.

If you will not be renting a car, Waikiki in Honolulu on the Island of Oahu is your only bet.

Pick up a copy of Hawaii for Dummies (highly-regarded travel guide that covers all the Islands) and get a good map of Hawaii as well.

Don't delay.

wilke, this is a pretty old thread. Best to start your own, as the OP may never come back to TA.
