HAWAII TRAVEL 101

  • 10) Pineapple. best.ever.ever.ever.
  • 9) Longboard beer...local, Hawaiian beer.(or bud light & lime)
  • 8) Snorkle, sail, surf---whatever it takes to get you out on that water...do something you haven't done before!
  • 7) KONA COFFEE!!! Do NOT waste your time at Fivebucks...local small chain & even small grocers all sell Kona, and the flavour....mmmmmmmm
  • 6) Don't waste your time at the beach...explore - there are lots of cheap, moderate and expensive excursions you can go on.
  • 5) I know everyone knows this - trust me, I work at The Weather Network & we say it all the time. SUNSCREEN, SUNSCREEN, SUNSCREEN! YOU will still leave with a tan - trust me...I've been there.
  • 4) You have GOT to see those turtles! They are so amazing!
  • 3) SEAFOOD! Even if you don't like it...Hawaii is not known for having really great restaurants - so TRY the seafood...it is unbelievable!
  • 2) Try the poi! Don't know what that is?.....just wait. TRY it.
  • 1) don't bring a sweater - you will not need it, not at night, not during the day. ONLY bring one if you plan on going to high elevations. Even then - you probably only need a long sleeve shirt. And it just takes up way too much space in your luggage! You will have room for the extra pair of shoes! :)
