Hello! My boyfriend and I will be in Oahu from July 1-7, 2013. We are coming from South Texas and are very excited to visit. I have been looking at the travel forums and have built our itinerary around some trip reports which I truly appreciate people posting. We are both very active and want to sightsee and have great time. We are not into shopping or expensive restaurants besides an occasional splurge. We are not foodies and will pretty much eat anything. I have a major sweet tooth and cannot wait to have some shave ice and Hawaiian desserts (recommendations for sweets would be appreciated. A couple of restaurants we want to include for sure is Dukes and House Without a Key because I have heard people mention those on their reports. We rented a condo in the Waikiki area at the Marine Surf and also rented a car to get around the island.
We both are pretty flexible and realize that we cannot fit everything into our trip.
One thing that we are probably crazy about attempting to do but we want to TRY….. we Workout every day except Sunday and we hope to get a Crossfit workout in every day, We will see if that actually happens. We also wanted to get a good run in(about 3-5 miles every other day)
July 1st- getting in late, not much time to sightsee, planning to grab a late, very late dinner (10pm) and settle in.
July 2nd (tues) wake up early to go to Diamond Head and do the hike, start gypsy tour app and head to Hanamua bay to take pictures and drive by(we saw that it is closed on Tuesday and will plan to go to beach on another day),Halona Blowhole and Halona Cove ,Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and do hike, Continue to Makapuu Pt. Lookout and Sea Life Park, end at Pali lookout.....we will stop along tour to eat wherever we see food( My question is...is this plan too short or will it take up the whole day? we wanted to fit in a workout and a sunset catamaran ride.( a recommendation is appreciated)
July 3rd (wed)- Pearl Harbor- we didn’t book on time so we will wake up early to get tickets and spend about 4-5 hours there. I saw a trip report that mentioned stopping at Aloha Stadium(market) and I figured that we could eat there and then head to Tantalus Drive and then to the National Cemetery. I figure after that we could head back to our condo and get ready for PCC. We don't want to do the whole day trip PCC, we plan to just do the dinner and HA Breath of Life show.
July 4th (Thursday)Hanamua Bay-relax!!! And snorkel. No other plans besides fitting in a workout.
July 5th (Friday) Kualoa Ranch and 2 hr ATV tour at 930am.
Tropical Farms Market to see what’s available.
July 6th (Saturday) North Shore, rent bikes
Must get shave ice
Thank you so much. I know the “workout” thing might be a little annoying as we are on a vacation, but my boyfriend and I have lost over 100 pounds together be eating healthier and working out. Our fitness is very important to us since we have worked hard to maintain our lifestyle and do not want to fall behind. I appreciate your help and cannot wait to hear from you.
