I love old houses, and this one is unique in how it combines the feel of Hawaii with the New England roots of the Wilcox family who built it.
The train ride around the planation was very informative and great for little kids as well, including a stop to feed the goats and pigs.

The northern most portion of the beach is great even for kids to boogie board and body surf--the lifeguards put cones to demarcate the safe zone.
I'm a big kid, my favorite thing to do at the beach is play in big waves.

Kauai Museum Lihue 5.6 mi away

There's a fascinating new shipwreck display from Hanalei Bay and I loved the separate history room with artifacts belonging to the royal family, photos and vintage craftwork.
Families with children will appreciate that the museum is pretty concise, unlike the sprawling (but also excellent) Bishop museum on O'ahu.
