After a stressful year for the both of us, my mother and I decided to take a last minute trip to Hawaii for our birthdays (both in October). We will be there from Oct 16-20. Having lived in Vegas the past 10 years, we tend to stay away from the touristy hot spots, and we are looking for more relaxing, scenic, and history/cultural based activities. I rented us a small place attached to a house via VRBO in Lanikai, and also rented a car. Given the time constraint (4 nights) and obvious distance from the center of it all, do you think it is possible to fulfill the the itinerary that I have listed below? Also, I would love suggestions and recommendations. This is our first time ever traveling outside of the US. Thanks so much everyone!
Arrive in Honolulu at 11:30 am on Thursday - renting car - checking into housing rental - relaxing by Lanikai Beach and Pillbox Hike
Friday - Ziplining at Climbworks 11am to 1pm - Dole Plantation - North Shore sight seeing (especially want to try the food trucks that my friends have been telling me about!)
Saturday - Pearl Harbor (not going through an agency tour) - USS Arizona Memorial - Hang out in downtown Honolulu for a little shopping/sightseeing and Food
Sunday - No plans yet
Monday - Leaving back to Las Vegas
I really want to try Dukes (heard amazing things) and need to plan on a Luau, any recommendations?
