    As the crow flies, it's 200 miles from Oahu to the Big Island, and the only way to get there is by boat (slow) or plane (expensive). Flightseeing charters are available from Oahu, but it'll cost you upwards of $200-$300/person for the privilege. My advice, then? Budget some time to spend at least a week on the Big Island, or do Oahu this go-round and plan on hitting the Big Island for your next vacation!

    HI Kathy, Summertime, when families descend on Hawai‘i, constitutes high season. So does wintertime (from mid-December through March), when a blanket of brrrr covers most of the mainland. Holiday periods like Thanksgiving and Easter also draw throngs. Be careful about coming in late April: There are three simultaneous holidays in Japan at that time, which means the Japanese are traveling in greater numbers than usual. In general, the north and eastward facing coasts tend to get more rain. But even when it's raining on the north or eastern shore, it's often not on the south or westerly shores. And rain showers don't tend to last that long, like they do on the mainland.

    Absolutely, Honolulu's a good spot, though it does depend on what you're looking for. Obviously, it's a bit more built-up and "big city"-esque than other islands like Maui or the Big Island. The latter two have a few more scenic wonders (volcanoes!) and more remote beaches. On the flip side, Honolulu offers more amenities and attractions to keep families busy from dawn till dusk. You could also look at a resort like the Kahala to get away from some of the Waikiki hubbub: http://bit.ly/bNVkUP Here's a link to some other top-rated family resorts around the Hawaiian islands: http://bit.ly/bbFgYG
