Hawaii is a great option for families with children. Just go to the islands to see how the locals live, and get acquainted with the traditions. One of the perfect spots to go with your child is Kauai Island full of canyons, dozens of colorful safe beaches, quaint cliffs, and a fantastic oceanfront views. Rescuers on the beaches are on duty around the clock.
