3 Incredible Things to do in Hawaii
There are so many domestic vacations to take, but Hawaii feels extra special. Sure this island is also the 50th of the United States of America, but it feels so much more exotic than the rest of the continental US. Maybe it’s the rainforests, the waterfalls or the Polynesian influence. Or maybe it’s just the warm island breezes and amazing weather year round. Whatever it is, this will be a vacation you won’t soon forget. Here are three things to do while you visit Hawaii. It doesn’t matter which island you stay on because Hawaii interisland excursions are quite popular. You can board a plane and hop over to another island just for a day. Fly back before dinnertime and you’ll be able to stay at your same home base resort.
1. First, Pearl Harbor is a must-see while in Hawaii. This is the historic site of the Japanese attack on the US naval base that led the US to enter World War II. Not only is the memorial to the sunken USS Arizona moving, but you can also tour the USS Missouri, a WWII battleship. The Pacific Aviation Museum and other stops along this day trip tour will keep your family busy. The best part is that you don’t even have to stay on Oahu to do the tour. You can take a day trip from Maui and still see the site but without staying at a Waikiki resort.
2. Another popular attraction in Hawaii is Volcanoes National Park. This is where you’ll see Mount Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Mount Kilauea is located on the Big Island and has been erupting since 1983. While there, you can walk on black sand beaches, hike through the Thurston Lava Tube and you may even be able to witness and active eruption! This is definitely a must see and the park was names a UNESCO World Heritage site.
3. Finally, Maui’s Road to Hana is an adventure you have to see to believe! This day long trip will take you to the sleepy town of Hana on Maui’s eastern side. But it’s not about the destination—it’s all about the journey. This road is winding and will take you through waterfalls and rainforests. More than 100 one lane bridges make it tough to navigate if you’re not a local, but there are mini coach tours available through sites like DiscoverHawaiiTours.com.
