About Us

HONOLULU Family is the family publication of HONOLULU Magazine. The only truly editorial quarterly family magazine on O‘ahu is written by local parents for local parents and kids.

HONOLULU Family began as Island Family in 1995. In 2012, the magazine joined the HONOLULU Magazine brand and was renamed HONOLULU Family. The magazine is published four times a year--Spring, Summer, Back-to-School and Holiday--and is distributed to more than 130,000 readers every quarter through subscribers, preschools, public and private schools, doctors and dentists offices, libraries, and family centers including the Hawai‘i Childrenʻs Discovery Center, Hawai‘i Nature Center and more

Our team is dedicated to covering topics that make it easier and more fun to raise children in Hawai‘i. Our focus is on things to do together, whether that is trying a new park, volunteering, or making keiki-friendly snacks or arts and crafts at home. In every issue and on honolulufamily.com, youʻll find new books picked by local kid reviewers, upcoming family-friendly events, cooking ideas for you and your kids and articles on key issues including education, discipline, health, safety and exploring the island as a family. HONOLULU Family also offers resources including an editorial list of Summer Programs in our Spring issue, a Private School Guide in our Back-to-School issue and a list of Top Doctors and Best Dentists in our Holiday issue.

Honolulufamily.com continues this focus with timely reviews of exhibits and experiences by our parent bloggers, named "We Tried It", parent tips to navigating big events and local attractions with the kids, and full roundups of holiday events and festive treat ideas in its popular Easter, Halloween and Holiday corners. We also have the only exclusively family-focused online calendar in the state. 

HONOLULU Family's free weekly eNewsletter gives parents and grandparents 10-plus ideas of things to do every weekend.
