We just finalized the airline tickets yesterday! We'll be heading to Hawaii later this year! This will be our first time to the Big Island and if anyone has any tips or recommendations, I'm all ears. We'll be traveling with our two young children (4 and 5) and my husband's parents. We've already booked our hotel rooms and flights to Kona, but won't be making any activity plans until we get closer. Top items on my list: volcanoes, rain forests, black sand beaches, farmer's market, pineapple farms, waterfalls, and whales!
