Here in Hawaii the opportunity for excitement and relaxation alike is unmatched by any other destination. There’s amazing beaches, waterfalls, volcanoes, world-famous luaus, surfing, history, and so much more.
The island of Oahu is home to Honolulu, which is the state capital of Hawaii, and is known as “The Gathering Place.” This nickname alone is tell-tale of the welcoming vibes and hospitality that can be enjoyed here.
The island features the best nightlife in Hawaii, as well as famous Waikiki, an iconic beach, dining, and nightlife area. Oahu’s North Shore is the surfing mecca of the world, where surfers flock to each winter to appreciate the best the world has to offer.
Oahu is also characterized by their historic Chinatown and the Punchbowl, and perhaps most famously, Pearl Harbor. Pearl Harbor is the site of the World War II bombing attack and home to the USS Arizona Memorial. This is a monumental point of interest for tourists.
Oahu offers the perfect environment for a celebratory vacation with friends. There’s so much to do here, you’ll never be bored and you’ll walk away with experiences and memories to last a lifetime.
Spend your days soaking up the sun or take in as much activity as possible with the many excursions in Oahu, such as surfing, paddle boarding, zip lining, snorkeling, bike riding, hiking, and sightseeing. You can even book a catamaran boat cruise to take in all the beauty by sea!
