We are planning a trip. We went about 14 years ago and have some ideas of what we want to do but if anybody has tour recommendations or things to do it'd be awesome.

Way overpriced. For the cost of 1 trip to Hawaii, you could take 3 vacations to islands elsewhere. Hawaii is overrated & overpriced.

Main island?

We stayed on Maui. While it was a wonderful time, I share Scoreheads' thoughts. Save your money and go to any number of other places.

While I have never been, it is something we have talked about doing. I would want to see a lot but at the same time don't like the idea of changing hotels every few days. So I am thinking if we do it it would be from a cruise ship. NCL ports a ship in Honolulu.

Do you think he realizes how ignorant his response was? I somehow doubt it.

Had a client who lived in Lanai. Older lady, didnt want to fly, talk on the phone, etc

So once a year she paid for me and her attorney to come out for a week to Lanai and go over everything.

From what I got is that lanai is the real unexplored areas, quiet, etc. and not a kid portion of the Islands....ate fish tacos on the beach from a roadside stand and very few people around...went on a jungle tour, once again, nobody around....lanai for 4 days, maui for 2.....Maui is for the family.

I went there 25 years ago so I likely won't be much help but I really liked seeing Pearl Harbor and we also spent some time on Maui which I remember having
much better waves to boogie board on. Also took a catamaran trip and snorkeled as well as a sailboat to watch whales. I was glad my parents took us as I
doubt I could afford to go back again as an adult.

Kauai is very similar to this from what I have heard and in doing business with over the years was always told by the locals that it is a lot less tourism on this island.

The appeal of the beach bum lifestyle has always been high on my list.

I would do a reality show..."CAN YOU BE A BEACH BUM?"

been to BIG Island twice on father-in-law's dime. Its fucking awesome and I would move there in a heartbeat. Just a place to chill for the most part. Or hiking if you're in for that kind of thing.

I'd recommend the Wailea area of Maui, and suggest doing the trip to Hana with an open-top Jeep. I also like doing the bike ride down the mountain (they drive you to the top at dawn and you basically coast down the mountain for a few hours with almost no pedaling).

I think there are better values to be had for sure, but Hawaii is breathtaking.

Hawaiins are better than other natives at showing their disdain for rich white people.

I referred to our son as "breathtaking" to a few nurses at the hospital. None of them got the joke, and I'm fine with that.

+1. Beautiful area with some world class resorts (the Four Seasons is maybe the world's perfect place) and you can drive easily for cool stuff to do--Hana hwy, as mentioned, private snorkeling in coves, etc. "Maui Revealed" is an excellent travel guide. http://www.amazon.com/Maui-Revealed-The ... 0983888736
