When people think about Hawaii, Most people think of Honolulu and the island of Oahu, with its pristine waters, dramatic lush green mountain ranges, hula dancing, and shaved ice, to name a few.
If you're constrained for time and want to see the best that the island has to offer, follow this 2 day itinerary that I followed for a trip with my parents.
Go to Romy's Shrimp Truck and Slurp over the island's famous Matsumoto Shave Ice.
What makes Hanauma Bay great for snorkelling is that it's shallow almost all the way through to where the buoys are.
Refueled, it's time to head over to Diamond Head State Park where you'll literally drive into the center of the crater to start the hike up.
Grilling and fireworks – it doesn't get better than that!
For your last evening, take a nice stroll by the beach, pick up last minute souvenirs at the ABC store, and buy some delicious shortbread cookies at the Honolulu Cookie Company.
