Vacation, Hawaiian Style!
Your trip to Hawaii is sure to be a great time, with many great activities planned, incredible sites to see, and more fun than you can handle. The islands are a beautiful place and no matter where you are going, it is pretty much a guarantee that you are going to have the time of your life.
Hawaii is known for so many great things, from beautiful beaches to friendly people and an exotic cuisine that meshes the best of many different cultures. And one thing that you can be assure of, is that your trip will be a unique experience with a style that can only be found in Hawaii. So, how can you have an authentic Hawaiian style vacation?
Eat What the Locals Eat
The restaurants that you are familiar with on the Mainland are here, but to truly have a Hawaiian experience, find the locally owned places and eat the dishes that the locals like to eat. You’ll hear the term “plate lunch” often, and this is a popular phrase for a 2-3 item combo, with side dishes that are served on a single plate. Rainbow Drive In on Oahu is one of the best plate lunch places in Hawaii.
Get Off the Beaten Path
We love the popular beaches and sites as much as anyone, but exploring Hawaii is one of the best activities you can experience. Head out and get a little lost, drive down roads that you are unsure of, and head to places where the crowds are sparse.
Dress Down and Be Comfortable
The islands are famous for being laid back, and the style of clothing holds true to that. Most of the time, shorts and flip flops (“slippahs”) are appropriate, and when you need to be fancy, flip flops, pants, and an Aloha Shirt are the dress of choice. Wear an Aloha Shirt for a few hours and you’ll quickly understand why everyone wears them.
The most important thing in Hawaii is the Aloha Spirit. This means so many things, but mostly it means to be respectful of others, the island, and everything around you. Smile, wave, and be friendly, and you will be welcomed with open arms. Make sure things are in better shape than when you arrive and take care of your temporary destination and the Aloha Spirit will be alive and well!
