From experience I will give you insight on a few points of interest as well as entertainment ideas while you are in Hawaii. It doesn't matter if you are just visiting or relocating to Hawaii....I guaranty that if you love to have fun just follow my pointers and you will be pleasantly surprised! (Remember that you can click on all blue underlined links for more details!) 

Hawaii's Breathtaking Hiking Trails!  Honestly, the last time I've went hiking was at 21 yrs. of age (okay, that way back in the day) although that last hike was from Tantalas to the other side of the Koolaus and looking down on the Windward side of Oahu. Needless, to say. That was the last time I went on a hike so long and up and down rugged mountains. Look at the Triple Ridge Olomana Hiking trail to the right. Wow. Anyway, if you like hiking this is definitely the place to find hiking trails.

Here are some Links to Other Hiking Sites

Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club- Good resource to find information on hiking in Hawaii
Oahu Hiking Tales - by Dayle Turner
Backyard Oahu - Oahu's Hiking Trails - by Greg Kingsley

When my husband and I were married, my daughter bought us tickets for a dinner cruise on the Star of Honolulu for the following night as our wedding gift from her. That was the greatest experience for one local girl (me) and haole (Caucasian) husband who thought the "touristy" things were only for tourists! Many shows, fun, entertainment, dancing, acknowledgement of our marriage, and tons of food!  And that's not all. The picture to the right depicts just where you'll be cruising. Right off of Ala Moana and Waikiki and viewing Diamond Head!  You will also see marine life as well! The Star of Honolulu has many different DINNER SHOW PACKAGES to pick from. So, remember, you don't have to be a tourist to go out and enjoy the finer things while in Hawaii! Weddings too!

Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park!  Now this is a place to go for the whole family.  (provided you love to get wet!) 25 acres of speed and shotgun slides, the Cliffhanger, Water playground, Keiki (children's) cove, picnics, and more!  Just make reservations and they will do all the planning and coordinating for you!  All you have to do is show up and have fun! There are also volleyball courts, lawn games, dunk tank, horse shoe pits, private pavilions for you and your family. Weddings? No problem!

Click on the following link for Company Picnic Information and Planning Brochure  Yup! You can plan your business, company or family meetings here as well!

Hawaii's Whale Watching Tours (In spiritual Hawaiian custom the Whales are the essense of the ocean) and Swim with the Dolphins (Sea Life Park) A while ago I used to work at the Kahala Mandarin Hotel now called the Kahala Hotel & Resort and they had a some dolphins in a large aquatic pool in the rear of the hotel by the swimming pools.  The trained dolphin personnel would guide their customers in the water to swim with the dolphins. While I was there, one of the mommies gave birth to a baby, and to this day I remember the baby's name. "Hoku" which means night of the full moon because the baby was born on guess what? The night of the full moon. Our monk seal population has decreased and is an endangered species so they (just as any other sea creature in Hawaii) are carefully watched over. This monk seal is rare and ONLY found in the Hawaiian Islands.

Sally what a great localism post! I sent the coloring page to the printer my daughter uses. She might be 11 but you are never to old to color! What a nice story about Hoku, what a treat for you.

That's it!  I'm going to have to stop reading your blogs about your beautiful home because before you know it, I'll be spending all my savings on a trip to do all this great stuff.  No, really... this is an excellent post.  I'm sure your local tourism board would be proud.  My daughter is very impressed with it too- she has the coloring page now!

Celeste, the last time I was in Hawaii was in 1973 in my younger years when I was in the Navy.  I do not remember much because of the beverage of choice that I was drinking during my stay.  I have gotten a little smarter since then :)

I would love to return someday and do all the things that you are suggesting in your blog.

George:  Cool!  My dad retired from the Navy in 1969 and my son just got out last year.  He was on the Kitty Hawk in Japan. And when you get her give me a buzz.
