Suggested Activities Lists Tips (11)

This Week Oahu

Favorite thing There's a free tourist publication called This Week Oahu that you can pick up from stands all over Waikiki. Check out the activities listings for the week, and also take a look at the coupons in the booklet.

I was surprised that I was actually able to use a couple of the coupons: one for a free appetizer at a Waikiki restaurant, and one for a free Hawaiian music CD when shopping at certain stores. Every little bit helps, right? Plus, I'm enjoying the CD.

The weather

Favorite thing January 13th, 2008 @ 2:58 am, the weather and temperature in Hawaii is Partly Cloudy, 17 degrees C, if that doesn't get you considering taking off from your cold snowy location for a few weeks, I don't know what would.
03/12/08, 1:18 pm, now, cloudy and 20 degrees celsius!

Just a five hour flight from the west coast of North America, and you're there!

Parasailing

Favorite thing Parasailing can be a lot of fun as long as it doesn't make you nervous to sign a 4 page liability waiver that says you won't sue if you crash like a kite gone out of control, and then get attacked by sharks once you hit the water...
The parasailing companies are listed in various tourist guides. I thought I had dialed the number for Parasailing 101, but apparently not because the van for "Extreme Parasailing" came to the hotel to pick me up. This company promises the highest, most exhileratingly long parasailing experience. The crew was friendly and safety conscious. I had a great time, and highly recommend them. Take your camera so you can get those panoramic views of the city!

Fondest memory The view from the sky!

Free, Fun Stuff to Do

Favorite thing Free lessons are offered for hula dancing, lei making, ukulele, and even quilting at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center in Waikiki, Oahu. Their website has all the information under "Entertainment".
Free, live musical shows are put on under the large banyan tree just down Kalakaua St. from the shopping center. The shows feature local artists and begin at sundown with a torch ceremony. The beautiful sunset in the far horizon is without charge too.

Fondest memory Sitting on the beach lawn listening to the calming tones of hawaiian guitars as hula dancers sway.

Favorite thing take the Tantalus Drive tour, see the view of Diamond Head, take a walk on Kalakaua St. and see the famous Duke Kahanamoka statue, drive through the Pali Tunnel and see the beautiful mountains.

Fondest memory Hearing and seeing The Brothers Cazimero at Chi's Beistro at Aloha Tower Marketplace. They've got the greatest voices I've ever heard. They are very fan-friendly. I've had my picture taken with them several times.

Do everything! Spend time in...

Favorite thing Do everything! Spend time in Waikiki (tacky, but fun), visit Pearl Harbor (the Arizona Memorial and the Missouri), go to the Pali Lookout (windy!), go to the Polynesian Cultural Center (for a look at various Polynesian cultures), hang out on the beach, meet people, and learn some local words!

Fondest memory The Aloha Spirit is an intangible yet very real thing. It is difficult to explain, but if it has touched your life, you will know it. It can be something as simple as giving a lei to a friend, or taking in strangers in need and sharing what you have with those who don't. It is like being a stranger's best friend, welcoming them with open arms and an open heart. It is this unconditional love for all that keeps me here in Hawaii. Much as I love to travel, I must come back here to fill my heart with love and aloha.

Go to the USS Arizona...

Favorite thing Go to the USS Arizona Memorial. I volunteer as a tour guide there two days a week.
Go to the beaches on the North Shore, they are the best, with the exception of all the beaches. Conde Naste has rated Kailua beach the best in the world. The best part of it all is that they are all free! once you are here

Fondest memory The clear air, sunshine, smiling & friendly people.
