Anita - Family Holidays
- I definitely love the Outrigger ride with the Beach Boys on Waikiki Beach! What a thrill! Also love swimming/snorkeling with the turtles and dolphins on the west shore with Sailhawaii. Swimming amongst a pod of dolphins is unbelievable!!! Queen Emma's Summer Palace also offers much history and their docents are a delight! Horseback riding at Turtle Bay is also a must and kayaking to the small islands off of Kailua is also breathtaking!!

First Time to Oahu
- We took a tourist bus to Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona which was well worth the price, then went by car to see the rest of the island. We "Googled" Oahu and "Binged" images of Oahu and found all the great places. Yelp gave good restaurants including Papa Ole's, Helena's Hawaiian, Lu Lu's and by accident found Lucky Belly on Hotel St. in Chinatown . Chinaman's Hat, turtles at Waimaea, and the neglected Leeward side of the island(WOW). We will be back and for longer time since this island is so special.

- Everywhere and Anywhere is Paradise. Just start early, from sun-up to sun-down. Enjoy God's gifts and beauty!

- I love going to all the karaoke bars in Honolulu/Waikiki. There are so many and one of my favorites is Station Bar & Lounge across the Convention Center in between Rockza and Quicksilver. They have free karaoke on the 1st and 3rd Friday of every month.

I Miss Living in Hawaii!
- Drive past the pineapple fields and maybe stop at the Dole Plantation for pineapple ice cream! On your way towards North Shore and watch the sun set on the beach away from all city lights, the view is unforgettable! Oh, and if you happen to pass a small little shop while your visiting called Maui Mike's you should check it out - it's the best rotisserie I've ever had!

One Of The Things We Enjoyed!
- Drive around the outside of the island in one day and eat at one of the shrimp trucks located on the side of the road on the North Shore.

- Drive around the whole island. It usually takes about two hours non-stop, but we split it up into two days so we went everywhere before dark. The North Shore is "sick." Diamond Head is amazing. The blow hole is an experience and whales are freakin' everywhere! My uncle is native so we went to native hotspots such as Chinaman's Hat and local hidden beaches and parks! It was amazing and breathtaking, and natives keep their local beaches a secret and so will I!! Ha!

hike manoa falls
- Manoa falls is a great hike. You' ll be rewarded with beautiful scenery in the lush rainforest. Take the bus...it's cheap and takes you nearly to the entrance.

- Iolani Palace is the best place to learn about Hawaiian royalty. We went to Bishop Museum hoping to be enlightened and were utterly disappointed with the negative atmosphere, scarcity of information, and lack of Aloha spirit. Then we went to Iolani Palace and were utterly impressed with the beauty, knowledge and historic stories!
AlohaBus Hop-on Hop-off
- Check out http://www.alohabus.com/index.html the new Double Decker buses that are in Waikiki! I went from Cheesecake Factory all the way to Hilo Hattie and then they offered a free shuttle to the Swap Meet!
