Fun things to do in kailua kona

Aloha! (That means “Hello” in Hawaiian!)

All good things come to those who wait, and when Hawaii became the 50th state, the country gained it’s own tropical paradise - which means so did you!  And we say, completely embrace it!

From fascinating tours such as the free entry National Tropical Botanical Garden, and Big Island Eco Adventures will show kids the islands incredible landscapes of rain forests, beaches and mountains.

The Polynesian Cultural Center is the most popular attraction for a reason, as it’s a place where kids can get an understanding of the strong cultural traditions they are experiencing.

Museums such as Grove Farm Homestead Museum and Pacific Aviation Museum will introduce them to the rich history that has been embedded into every person, and every building.

And activities such as the Cowboys of Hawaii and Ice Palace Hawaii will give those active kids an adventure they didn't think possible in the state.  Cowboys and ice in Hawaii - who would have thought!

They may be across the ocean, but they still know how to give families an incredible experience!

Aloha! (That means “Goodbye” in Hawaiian!)
