Things to do in Hawaii
Oahu, with the capital Honolulu, is the largest city on the islands. You have all of the conveniences of a large city. Great restaurants, shopping, museums and the famous Waikiki Beach.
Maui is more laid back. Whale watching, snorkeling, waterfalls or biking down the incredible Haleakala are some of the fun things to do on Maui.
The Big Island of Hawaii is the largest, but more isolated. There are mountains, beaches and ranches all on one island.
Kauai is a small island - and though there isn't much nightlife, your days will be full with the Grand Canyon of the Pacific, Waimea Canyon. Surf, snorkel see waterfalls, hike or just enjoy the sunny beaches. There are several spots on the island where movies have been made.
Be sure to take a trip to see the isolated islands of Molokai and Lanai. There are day excursions or short weekend trips available.
