Ahh, my hometown! I love Honolulu! There is so much to do and see here, especially if you love nature and being outdoors. The weather is typically nice all year round with showers here and there. People are friendly, food is good, and there is so much culture and aloha spirit everywhere you go.

Hawaii has only two national parks, both focused on preserving the islands' unique volcanic landscapes. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is unique, because it protects Kilauea Volcano, which is still active. Even if the lava isn't flowing during your visit, the park is still an awesome place to go hiking or just for a scenic drive. The Kilauea Iki Trail feels ...

Hilo is small and quaint but manageable much better for living in than touring. I've spent much of the past year that I've been in Hawaii living in Hilo. I love the warm days sprinkled with intermittent rain to keep the temperatures from getting unbearably hot. For me the weather is perfect!

The Road to Hana is world famous for the natural beauty of its unblemished landscapes and towering waterfalls. Maui is understandably proud of Heavenly Hana’s successful fight against overdevelopment and the destruction of their Hawaiian culture. Although Hāna is only about 52 miles/84km from Kahului, a typical trip to Hāna takes about three hours, as the road is very winding, ...

So lush and peaceful. Staying at a BnB in volcano is the perfect base for exploring volcanoes national park.

Sweet little town on the north end of the east side of the island. Probably most well known for it's close proximity to the famous Waipio Valley. It's a quaint little town with some of the nicest and most friendly people. There isn't much to do but I really like they vibe. There is one delicious slow food restaurant. It's ...

This place helps you let go and simply relax. I could live here.

Practically the end of the world for better and for worse! Pahoa located in the Puna region of Hawaii is one of the least developed areas of Hawaii. Big business and building have for the most part stayed away from this small haven because of the looming active volcano. Under Pele's, the Hawaiian fire/volcano goddess, protection this part of Hawaii ...

I Love sunny Kona. It has some box-stores and strip malls but it still has a place in my heart. Fun to stroll around and great place to canoe paddle or watch the Ironman!

Lived in Kula for about 6 years in a wonderful little "ohana" (it was an attached cottage). No other place on the island offers unobstructed views of both the north and south shore of Maui at the same time! It is truly magical. I would highly recommend taking a trip to this dreamy upcountry area and check out the sites; ...

At the intersection of where laid-back surfers meet back-to-land farmers and beatnik artists, that's where you'll find Hanalei. This slowed-down North Shore town is your last stop before heading out to Na Pili Coast State Park for hiking or more sunning on the beach. Or you can just hang around in town at Hanalei Bay, a surfing, body surfing and ...

North shore has some of the most scenic views. It's far more quiet then south Waikiki where are the tourist are. It's about an hour or two hour in traffic drive up here from Waikiki.

Cute little downtown shops on one side of the street. It's a good place to stop on your way to or from Akaka Falls. A few trinket shops and restaurants line the street but they close early so it's more or a lunch spot rather than dinner. There's also a gym a little further down the street that has youth ...

If they ever film Wild Wild West in Hawaii this would be the perfect place for it. Very dry and sunny but beautiful beaches. Good hikes and great snorkeling.

Lahaina is on Maui's leeward western side, meaning it's got the driest calmest weather and seas on the island. Maui is a small island. If the weather is good, you can take day trips to take in the sights and northern beaches. If it's raining in Haiku, it may well be sunny in Lahaina.

My second home and a true paradise! Ulua beach is still the best beach I have been to in the world! No better place to relax, snorkel, dive or run along the oceanfront path.

Paia is the most fun, colorful, and eclectic town on Maui! While a few name brand retaisl stores have moved in, most businesses are one of a kind. I love to sit at Cafe Des Amis's outdoor dining room and watch all of the people stroll by. Then I love to hit my favorite stores including Tamara Catz, LeTarte, and ...

Kailua is such a cute small town. It's a great little community, the people are friendly, it feels safe, there's lots of shops in the center of town, and has so much to offer. From the town center, it's a short stroll to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. There's lots of little local eateries that are ...

A cute small town located upcountry Maui. There are a few eateries and hang out places. I went hiking not too far from the main town center, a good hour hike into some cavern areas. Weather can go from sunny dry to rainy downpour. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes that can get wet and bring a flashlight if you ...

Personally - this is my favorite resort area on Maui. Many people like Wailea better. Good for you. I love the classic white sand beaches and relaxed luxury feel of Kapalua's West Maui strip. Wailea on the East side has more of a honeymooners meet Paris Hilton vibe - its a little too LA for my tastes but trust me ...
