MY RECOMMENDATIONS:

Rent a Camper Van
We thought it’d be super fun to rent a camper van for a couple of days!

Check out the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet
Open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00am to 3:00pm, the swap meet at Aloha Stadium is a fun place to get some souvenirs, try samples Admission is only $1.00 per person!

Go Hiking
There is nothing more rewarding than a breathtaking view at the top of a hike, and I don’t think it gets any prettier than Hawaii. There are tons of hikes you can go on – this time, we hiked the Lanikai Pillbox. The hike itself is relatively easy with some steep climbs, but definitely doable. The view throughout the hike is gorgeous and for about a 30 minutes round-trip of work, it’s a must-do in Oahu!

Go to the Beach
Lanikai
Sandy Beach

Visit the North Shore
The North Shore is probably my favorite part of Oahu. If you’re staying in the Honolulu area and contemplating the drive, it’s definitely worth it! It’s a great little town and there’s plenty to do, see and eat there.

Kel being a surf fanatic, we had to stop by Banzai Pipeline, home of the Pipeline Masters Surf Contest. Although we didn’t get to do much surfing during this trip because of the winds, it was pretty awesome to be there and see a few of the famous houses.

Don’t forget to check out Haleiwa for food trucks and cute little shops. You can take a nice stroll and stop by Matsumoto’s – the best spot for shaved ice. If you need a little pick-me-up, an Island Latte from Island Vintage Coffee is a must. Also, get to Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck between 10:00am to 5:00pm to get your dose of the best garlic shrimp you’ve ever tasted!
