I got there at around 8 and didn't leave until 12:30 PM. you should start at the Visitor's Center to get an update on the weather and grab yourself a more portable map. ...

The heart of Hawaii tourism. I've been to Honolulu on Waikiki beach twice now but only for short stays of a few days each. I had a great time during both of my stays, comparatively to the rest of Hawaii there is a lot to do here but personally I wouldn't want to stay in Honolulu. A city like Honolulu ...

Lahaina is really a little more touristy than I like. Te streets are lined with little schwag shops. There are some nice art galleries and still worth a stop. I recommend eating away from first street and going to star noodle or the pie shop for really good grindz. The banyan tree was very interesting although the drunken homeless people ...

It's not hard to see why Hickam Air Force Base was once voted the most beautiful AFB in the nation. It simply is. Whether you're here to shop, watch a fun air show or dine at the beautiful Officer's Club, you'll quickly witness the natural beauty of this pristine military base.

The museum and the sunken Arizona is impressive. However, I wouldn't do it if I had to wait 2 hours for it. Nevertheless, it's important to visit the area to get a sense of the size and history of the place.

The downtown area is quaint and right out of the 60s / 70s. Home to a number of mom and pop businesses, including coffee shops and restaurants. Parking is easy and the area is easily navigated on foot.

This is the charming Hawaii that most people think they want to see when they come to Hawaii. Local shops within a close proximity to the northern coast where surfers come to test the waves sit alongside favorites like Matsumoto's Shave Ice and Giovanni's Kahuku Shrimp Truck. It's all a short drive away.

Love the drive to the windward side. The cliffs of the Pali are breathtaking, usually lined with streams of waterfalls or shrouded in mist.

Volcano Villiage and the Natl park is beautiful-- love the birds! All of the active lava that we see in Kalapana is generated from the Halemau'mau ... then goes to Puuoo.. then comes out right in our home of Kalapana. If you want to see active lava, you must come to Kalapana and we the landowners will hike you to ...

The Hawaiian Visitors Bureau has a profile of the typical type of visitors to each island from many years of surveys. For the Big Island, it is usually someone a bit older, who likes nature, and a relaxed vacation atmosphere. Kailua-Kona is the central receiving point for these visitors, and has deep sea fishing, whale watching, tours to the Volcanoes ...

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 ...

Kehei is located on Maui's southwest. It consists of a string of beaches and lots of nearby affordable condominiums for vacation rentals. The huge luxury hotels are a bit further away, which appeals to many. The town itself is modest but with lots of shopping and restaurants.

Upcountry is the kind of place where people leave fruit out by the road with a can for payment--it's like a garden, and HAS a few gardens--including a lavender farm--that's delighful.

Wahiawa is a great place to visit i could walk anywhere there and never be bored. everyone is laid back, i saw two trucks get in to a fender-bender and both drivers got out to see if the ...

Dubbed the Second City, Kapolei has certainly grown since the days of my childhood. To give you a sense of perspective, it used to be empty fields of grass and sugarcane fields. Now, you'll find a Costco, Target, Chili's and government buildings. Getting through has become a bit of a hassle, though with traffic comes lots of fun, as this ...
