  • We took our younger boys there (then around age 11 and 8). They loved it!! I am taking a 2 and 4 year old tomorrow a.m. It is chocked full of great things to see and do. There especially are lots of things for younger-aged kids, including a model of a space shuttle you can sit in, and a movie to see. As a local school teacher, I always love finding inexpensive places that are kid-centered. This one definitely is!

Where to stay in Kailua-Kona

If you wish to indulge yourself while on the Kona coastline of the "Big Island," book your stay at one of Kailua-Kona's fully furnished beachside villas, offering spa services, free Wi-Fi, and secure parking. You can also try one of the coastline's luxury resorts, featuring tennis courts, fitness centers, and on-site activities like hula lessons and diving classes. Smaller hotels a short drive from the city may not offer beach access, but they provide plenty of privacy at a fraction of the cost of the area's big resorts.
