Hawaii for the Holidays


Sure, the 70 degree weather doesn’t feel much like Christmas time we are used to but trading white snow for white sand is hardly something I can complain about. Jesse and I were able to explore during a long weekend and found some amazing things to do and created a bucket list of things to still do(or maybe save for next year…we are both way too busy).

Holiday Fun on Oahu

If you are anywhere near Waikiki that is one of the best spots to be. All of the hotels have gorgeous displays all over the place and the shops on the strip are no different(I really loved what the Royal Hawaiian Center had going on). If you happen to be there on Friday, be sure to catch the fireworks that start around 7:45! They can be seen from all over and they are put on by the Hilton Hawaiian Village who also has a gorgeous display! If walking really isn’t your speed, jump on a tour with the Waikiki Trolley to see all of the beautiful lights and displays in Honolulu. If you are more into the shopping scene, each of the malls on the island has some sort of display up. My personal favorite is in the uptown portion of the Pearlridge Mall. There are lots of cute activities for the kiddos too!

Pro tip: It gets down to a brisk 70ish degrees at night here so grab your cocoa and a malasada from Leonard’s on your way into town! Yes, 70’s is cold for us here…
