2. Too Rainy To Go To the Beach? Let’s Ice Skate!
Building a sand castle or outdoor swimming may be cancelled, so why not go ice skating? The Ice Palace opened in 1982 is the only ice rink available in Hawaii. There are public hours available for free skating, a hockey league, and skate school for those just learning. The Ice Palace is also available for special events such as birthday parties. There are several party packages available. Hawaii families can enjoy an afternoon of skating and spending time together. The Palace, as it is known to locals, has been visited by people from all over the world. The Ice Palace has attracted countless crowds, and has been visited by Olympian skater, Kristy Yamaguchi. Some adults who grew up in the 80’s probably have memories of their visits at the Ice Palace. Why not create a memory for your kids?
3. Lunch and a Visit To the Waikiki Aquarium
The Waikiki Aquarium opened in 1904 and has been showing the wonders of the Hawaii reefs ever since. There is much to see in the exhibits which offer viewings of corals, marine communities, jellyfish, natural predators, and much more. The Waikiki Aquarium also has a full calendar of events and offers programs for schools, activities and classes for the family, and the opportunity to plan your own private celebration. However, if you are just there to experience family activities for Hawaii families on a rainy day, then a self-guided tour is always allowed. Your kids can enjoy learning about their natural environment. There are lots of delicious places to eat, but remember that the parking is metered, so be sure to bring lots of quarters.
Families in Hawaii have lots of options when it comes to finding family friendly activities on a rainy day. Instead of keeping the kids inside, why not build some memories by treating them to an outing to one of the wonderful, historical, and educational options listed?
