Finding Adventure in Hawaii

The Big Island is packed with sights to see and adventures to go on; it’s an outdoor enthusiast’s dream!


So Much to Do, So Little Time

There’s a tourist book I saw at the airport that says there are 101 things to do in Hawaii. If you ask me, that’s an underestimate! The entertainment and activities here are inexhaustible. You can “Go Flumin'” through the old sugar plantation waterways or Humvee-ing in the rainforest, hike under a 500-foot waterfall or ride an ATV from the mountains to the sea. You can go rafting, ride horses, roast your own coffee, watch whales, surf, kayak, visit Waimea Town, tour an ancient peace temple, and, of course, shop till you drop.

Finding Adventure in Hawaii

Whatever part of the Big Island you choose to visit, you’re in for a unique and unforgettable experience. And with the number of things that’ll be left to do at the end of your stay, you may just have to start planning a return visit.

      If someone wanted to surprise me with a trip to Hawaii, that would be awesome. I will marry the man who will be with me in Hawaii. I AM NOT KIDDING HERE.

      Do people not realize the library is where you will be quiet not to discuss your whole trip to Hawaii with your boyfriend who cheated on you.

      I had to cancel my Hawaii trip a couple years back, but it was my goal for the trip to stay away from the overly tourist spots! Hawaii is crowded during the peak season. You will not enjoy the place.

        It’s true! I went there last year, and I did not know that there’s an event ongoing. My whole vacation was ruined.

      My friends from college planned a trip to Hawaii. I still don’t know if I will come, or not. It’s too much expensive, and I have no boyfriend with me.

      Man, some people in my office are leaving to go to Hawaii for three weeks for a work trip. I got the best company, but still hoping that I belong to that group of people.

      There’s a night dive? Then how can you see the creatures underwater during the night? Isn’t it too dark under the water?

        I thought I’m the only one who thinks that way. Besides, I think they are also sleeping during that time? Animals sleep too, right?

      I can imagine myself stargazing at Hawaii with my special someone. That would be a great way to celebrate an anniversary.
