One thing’s for certain, whatever you do in Hawaii is sure to be enjoyable. What’s not to love about a tropical paradise? To help you narrow down the options, here are a few favorite activities from Boscov’s Travel Specialist, Susie Roth.
Haleakala – Maui
Haleakala, also known as the East Maui Volcano, is a massive 10,000 foot volcano surrounded by Haleakala National Park. This rugged backcountry consists of more than 30,000 acres of stark volcanic mountains, colorful lava rocks, lush greenery, natural pools and waterfalls.
“Lost” Tour – O’ahu
For fans of the hit TV drama Lost, taking one of the many comprehensive tours to visit its filming locations is sure to be a cool experience. See and hear how parts of diverse O’ahu were transformed by Hollywood magic into Sydney, Australia; Seoul, Korea; Los Angeles, California, small villages in the Middle East and Kenya, and of course ”The Island”.
Volcanoes National Park – The Big Island
For a truly unique experience, be sure to visit the Big Island. Hosting the two most active volcanoes in the world, this area and its lava flows are responsible for the Hawaiian Islands as we know them today – and it’s still growing!
Pearl Harbor – O’ahu
Despite its distance from the continental US, the American spirit is alive and well in Hawaii. Visit unique exhibits, museums and memorials dedicated to the attacks on Pearl Harbor, sparking the United States’ direct involvement in WWII.
Boat ride off the Na Pali Coast - Kauai
“Na Pali” translates to “The Cliffs” and for good reason – its sheer 90-degree rock-face hugs the 15-mile stretch of rugged coastline, making much of the area inaccessible. The setting sun creates a sea of colors and highlights the sharp ridges of the coastline; creating an unforgettable experience so stunning, Susie names this as her all-time favorite Hawaii activity.
