Vote Now: Best of HONOLULU Family 2018

Take a few minutes to tell us about your favorite places and win!

No one knows what parents need more than other parents. That’s why we turn to our friends and family for their recommendations for the best places for our kids.

HONOLULU Family’s annual award, “Best of HONOLULU Family” is the ultimate referral list. Most of our winners are selected by O‘ahu parents because of their personal experiences. Our editorial team picks a few more that we’ve discovered while exploring the island.

This year, we’ve made voting even easier for busy parents. Love to go out to eat? Take a few minutes nominating the best places to pick up a snack or meal in our “Eat” category. Spent months searching for the best tutoring or dance places? Answer just nine questions in our “Learn” category. 

Each form you fill out qualifies you to win a $200 gift certificate to Dave & Buster’s. So, vote in four categories and youʻll have four chances to win. It also gives your favorite businesses a chance to be recognized as one of Honolulu’s “Best.”
