Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach
Where: Honolulu, Oahu, HI
Between aqua-cycling on the hotel's vast lagoon (above) and going on a mini deep-dive in an Atlantis Submarine, the 22-acre oceanfront resort called Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach is one big virtual ocean of opportunity for the little ones. The submarine, which is based at the hotel itself (not a drive away) dives about 120 feet to explore artificial reefs teeming with fish and "the wreckage of sunken ships and an old passenger plane submerged for the fun of exploration". They also have waterslides on site (lower picture) and a Friday night fireworks show because kids ... well, they love fireworks.
