With so much to see and do on Hawaii’s islands, you don’t want to waste a minute of your time there. So, here are a few great places you’ll want to visit if you win $50,000 towards a Hawaii vacation.
The USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor
Of all of Hawaii’s tourist destinations, few attract as many visitors as the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. This is the site of the tragic attack that forced the United States to enter World War II. And, the USS Arizona Memorial is just one of five historic sites located here. You’ll also want to visit the USS Utah Memorial, the USS Oklahoma Memorial, and the areas in Battleship Row and Ford Island. Other attractions on site include the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, the Pacific Aviation Museum, and the Battleship Missouri Memorial.
Located in South Oahu, Waikiki Beach was once the first vacation destination for Hawaii’s royalty. After the first hotel was built here in 1901, it opened up Waikiki Beach to the world and since that time, this quaint beach town has become one of the most desirable places to visit in all of Hawaii. When you visit Waikiki, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding and visit the Honolulu Zoo, the Waikiki Aquarium, and the local landmark, the Duke Kahanamoku Statue.
The North Shore of Oahu
If you want to test your surfing skills against Hawaii’s famous monster waves, then the North Shore of Oahu is where you’ll want to be. You’ll have plenty of options here, including Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach, and Ehukai Beach, also known as Banzai Pipeline. But, the North Shore isn’t just for surfing. The historic town of Hale’iwa is also located here and a visit here will introduce you to some of the best art galleries, restaurants, surf shops, and food trucks on the island. Another popular stop on the North Shore is Laniakea Beach, where you can see Green Hawaiian Sea Turtles in their natural habitat.
Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park
The Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park is located on Kauai and it is considered by many who have seen it to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. This part of Hawaii was once home to the island’s royalty but it is now one of the most popular tourist destinations in Hawaii. With so much natural scenery to take in, the Na Pali Coast State Wilderness Park is a favorite among outdoor lovers and hiking enthusiasts. The Kalalua Trail offers 22 miles (roundtrip) of stunning vistas and coastal views.
Mt. Haleakala is a 10,023-foot dormant volcano that pretty much takes up all of Maui and it can make for some of the most memorable sunrises and sunsets you’ll ever see in your lifetime. Therefore, a trip to Mt. Haleakala National Park is practically a given if you come to this island, even more so if you love hiking. Some of the trails you’ll want to try here include Halemauu, Sliding Sands, and the Kaupo Gap.
