    • Travel buddy/meetup Sept 2015?

      Hawaii (State of) May 18, 2015 at 10:55 AM

      Hello, new member here and first trip to Hawaii planned for Sept 2015. So far 'solo' trip, but thought it might be nice to have a travel companion or even meet up with others with similar interests. Active 40-something female leaving from East coast on 9/21 to Honolulu, staying in Waikiki (Outrigger Beach Hotel) until 9/25 then flying to Maui staying at Kaanapali Beach Hotel until 9/30, depart for home that afternoon. On Oahu would like to see Pearl Harbor, North Shore for a day, possibly Polynesian Cultural Center. On Maui would like to do sunrise at Haleakala Natl park, road to hana, check out Lahaina, a few hikes would be great as well, and of course relaxing on the beautiful beaches.

      Alternate ways to get out of Hawaii when you are an adult travelling standby? its on just United?

      Hawaii (State of) Apr 12, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      Hello, I just joined this network to see if there is anyone out there who would know an alternate way to get from Honolulu to mainland US. My friend who works for United did not realize that flights oversell and/or cancel, and thus it can be close to imposwsible to get out of Hawaii as a non revenue stand by passenger. SAdly, she made it back to Colorado without her 3 teenagers, husband , and 2 yr old--all awaiting a flight on United that might possibly have seats since Wednesday April 8th at Honolulu airport!!!!

    • Easy walks/hikes to sights?

      Maui Apr 10, 2015 at 8:42 AM

      Hi everyone. Traveling in May - our first time in Hawaii. Staying on Maui 10 days and hope to fill some of the time exploring island's natural sights. Question is- Are the hikes to sights on Road to Hana too difficult for beginners or those with mobility concerns? We're larger folks, but we are relatively active so distance isn't an issue. (We just go slow.) However, I'm concerned about climbing. Can anyone suggest the best stops (on the RTH or other locations) that might be suitable for us? Thanks in Advance!

      Transportation/car rental

      Hi - cruising May 16-23 and then staying at Turtle Bay 23-26. I will need ground transport from the airport to the cruise terminal and then from the cruise terminal to the rental car. Prefer private transport but more importantly reliable and quick. Some people say just wait til I get there and others say its important to have it all set up before I go. Prices are all over the map and reviews are too. Any advice would be appreciated.

      Want to stay here - I saw that you can rent one of the beach villas for virtually the same price as a room at the resort. I understand the only thing you can't use at the resort is the pool and of course there is no maid service. Has anyone rented one of the villas or stayed at the resort?

      Really want to stay here post-cruise. Pretty pricey. Do you think you can get a better rate if you just walk in without a reservation or is it usually pretty booked up? I'm assuming I'd need to rent a car? Any suggestions on the best/least expensive place to rent a car? Should I rent one before travelling or get one when we get there after the cruise?

      Public Bus Service to Pearl Harbor and return?

      Honolulu Mar 5, 2015 at 6:44 PM

      I'm having trouble working out the online bus timetable for Honolulu. I understand that RTE #42 goes passed Pearl Harbor and this route is close to our hotel. I found a bus on the timetable which goes passed timing point 'V' (near our hotel) at 8:13am on a weekday and arrives at timing point 'Q' (Arizona Memorial) at 9:17am but I cannot find a #42 bus leaving Pearl Harbor and returning to Waikiki. Can anyone help me solve my confusion?

      Where else to stay in Oahu

      Oahu Feb 3, 2015 at 5:11 PM

      Hi. We have booked to stay in Oahu for 13 nights. We have been to Maui before and are quite happy just to explore Oahu this time. We will spend at least half the time in Waikiki as we like to shop and bike and intend to do a tour or two. We would like to spend 4-5 nights or so somewhere else on the island. We are in our fifties but are fit and love the beach, snorkeling and walks.
      I have looked at Ko Olina which looks lovely but maybe too resorty for what we want this trip. We could visit though as i have read the lagoons are lovely. I have been looking at Haleiwa area. Is this area really for young people who want to surf? Is the road a good one to travel on? We are happy to hire a car to get around. Any other suggestions for somewhere else to stay on Oahu would be very welcome. Thanks

      From the web-search, RoundTable Pizza and Armbar Sports Bar and Grill seems good. Any better options?
