Honolulu, HI: Good Vibrations
The beaches and streets of Waikiki are alive with surf, shopping and the contagious spirit of Aloha.
First, some packing advice: throw your swimsuit in last, so it’s on top when you rip into your suitcase upon arrival. When you see the island’s beaches from the plane, you won’t want to waste any time indoors once you land.
What you can’t see from the plane is the friendliness of the Hawaiian people. That’s Aloha, and it is the defining spirit of the Hawaiian islands, one that you’ll encounter at every turn of your adventure here.
Hit the happening scene on Waikiki Beach. You can body surf here, but the real fun comes with renting boards and taking surf lessons on Waikiki’s forgiving waves. After an exhausting morning playing in the Pacific, a fish taco lunch at Duke’s Canoe Club is the perfect way to revive.
Snag a shaved ice to explore the shops in the International Marketplace, including the Quicksilver/Roxy flagship surf gear store, and vendor carts hawking pearls, beads and tee’s. Visit funky Japanese vintage shops en route to sumptuous Asian cuisine at Keo’s open-air eatery or some innovative sushi at Sansei
