Things to do on Oahu
A colleague recently asked for my advice on planning a special trip to Hawaii for her 40th wedding anniversary next year. The couple considers this a “once in a lifetime trip” and they don’t want to miss any “must sees.” What a wonderful place to celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary! I’ve visited all of the major islands over the years and a trip to Hawaii can be done on a budget. All of the islands have their own personality. Today, I’d like to share some of my thoughts on Oahu.
Oahu is called the “gathering island” for a reason. It is the most populous island in the chain and it receives the most visitors. Honolulu International Airport brings people from around the world to the island each and every day of the year. Although you could easily spend several days exploring the Honolulu/Waikiki area and get by using the public bus system, taxis, or Ubers, I recommend renting a car and traveling outside of the Honolulu/Waikiki at least 1 day, 2 if you have the time and money.
These are some of my favorite things to see and do when visiting Oahu.
