My family will be arriving in June and staying for about 8 days. I have listed our "plan" below. Please look over it and give any advise you can on recommendations you would add or take away. We love to travel and have never been to Hawaii before. I am an advid scrapbooker and we LOVE taking pictures. We just want to have a VERY memorable time in case we never make it back.
We are lucky enough to have a friend from high school open there house for us to stay with them while they are visiting themselves. Without their wonderful hospitality this trip might have been a few more years into the future.
Day 1: Arrive around 4:30 p.m. We plan to just pick up or car and head to our friends house
Day 2: Place of Refuge, Kona Keake Kua Bay or maybe Hula Daddy...it was on Tripadvisor.
Day 3: Palou Valley Lookout....Do you recommend the horseback ride?
Day 4: Mauna Kea
Day 6: Hawaii Tropical Gardens....What else would you recommend
Day 7: Hawaii VNP. We do plan to get a hotel on this side of the island the night of Day 6
Day 8: OPEN but we do leave that night about 8:30
I would love to do the NIGHT SNORKEL.
Do you recommend I substitute anything for something else to get the best bang for our time? We are so excited.
We plan to rent a car and take in as much as we can without feeling too rushed.
Thanks in advance for your input
