Hawaii Part III

If you want a more comprehensive guide, this book was recommended to me: Oahu Revealed: The ultimate guide to Waikiki, Honolulu, and Beyond.

Hawaii Part II.B

Monday, Day 6 Andy and I (and probably the kids) had been going non-stop since we left Georgia so we decided to spend Monday morning at our own beach until we needed to head to the Polynesian Cultural Center. We ate lunch before we left and hit the road. The drive was much more pleasant …
