About Marcie

Let me introduce myself. I’m Marcie and my first trip to Hawaii was in 4th grade. We went to visit my Grandma who split her time between Kauai and Seattle.

I immediately fell in love with the Hawaiian culture and even started taking hula lessons back home in Seattle. On each trip to Hawaii, I’d visit the local library and read books about Hawaiian mythology and history. And go to as many hula shows as possible!
Since then, I’ve visited Hawaii almost 40 times! I’ve explored Oahu, Maui, Kauai, the Big Island, Moloka’i, and Lana’i.
I’m passionate about sharing my real Hawaii tips as someone who has personally been there many times!

Welcome to Hawaii Travel with Kids, one of the top Hawaii blogs. I started this destination site to focus purely on family travel to the Hawaiian Islands after my success on my family travel blog Marcie in Mommyland.

I’ve now been a professional travel writer for 8 years.
