  1. Deciding Where to Go

    Hawaii has many different islands, with different appeals. When choosing, keep in mind of what you want from your trip. If you want a relaxing vacation where you don’t do much but hang out at the beach compared to wanting a trip going to different attractions, will effect the island you’ll want to visit. When I went last year, my family split our trip on to two islands. ┬áMaui is a great island to visit if you want to relax at the breach. Maui has amazing beaches that are near hotels and other accommodation. While there are many activities to do, like surfing or zip lining, the main attraction is hanging out on the beach. This is a popular spot for Canadians to travel to. It almost seems like every tourist you talk to is Canadian, and my family ran into many friends from home. ┬áThe other island I visited was the big island. This island has more tourist attractions, with includes volcanos and culture. Research the islands before you book, to make sure your visiting an island that will be perfect for your vacation.

  2. Booking ahead of time

    Hawaii is a super popular place, and is especially busy during winter break when family have time off. To sucre plane tickets and accommodation you may have to book months in advance, especially if you want to go and stay at a nice place.

  3. The experience

    Hawaii is a warm and welcoming place. I arrived on boxing day, so I didn’t get the Hawaii christmas experience like a few friends do every year, but from the aftermath I saw, there wasn’t much. Don’t expect a christmas setting when you arrive, because you will be disappointed. My personal view is that Hawaii doesn’t need the decoration, but if it is important to you can make your stay more christmassy but doing your own activities. decorate your hotel room. Wear christmas shirts.Bring a few gifts to exchange on christmas day. whatever you want. Hawaii is always a fun time, especially if you are with the right people. I went with my family and brought along relatives to join us and we had a great time. Our time in Maui was laid back, spending all our time at the beach with several shaved ice breaks. When we went to the big island, we stayed in Kona. Everyday we would drive somewhere new. To new beaches or to the volcanos we had a great time.

There is a reason Hawaii is so popular. The weather is warm as well as the water. The island is beautiful and stepping on to the island for the first time is like stepping into travel magazine. It is even relaxing in its busy seasons. Hawaii is a great destination to travel to.IMG_2355
