Spend the Holidays in Hawaii
This holiday season, trade the snow shovel for a surfboard and head to Hawaii. Nothing beats the winter blues like the gazing out on the deep blue of the Pacific as the gentle warmth of the sun shines upon your face. Stretch out on a beach chair and relax—you’ve got all day to enjoy everything the islands have to offer. Here are the top reasons to spend the holidays in Hawaii.
Whether you’re a parent treating the family to a wonderful vacation, a lovebird who can’t wait to surprise your other half or a solo traveler who wants to melt away the stress of the season, Hawaii is the place for you. This tropical nirvana boasts miles of beaches, perfect for long, romantic walks with your loved one or for building awesome sandcastles with the kids. Are you an adventurer? Take a helicopter ride for aerial views of the islands or go for a hike in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Live it up however you please in the Aloha State.
It’s easy to picture what you’re having for a traditional holiday dinner. Turkey for Thanksgiving or Christmas, latkes for Hanukkah and so on and so forth. That’s because it’s the same thing every year which can be boring after a while. Change things up when you opt for an authentic Hawaiian luau to celebrate. With mouthwatering Kalua pua’a—roast pork—side dishes like poi and lomilomi salmon, and desserts such as pineapple upside-down cake, the only thing that will come as a surprise is why you haven’t done this years ago!
Even Santa has his own customs when he visits Hawaii. The sleigh and the reindeer stay at the North Pole (who can blame them—it’s a long trip!) Instead, Santa Claus rides to shore on an outrigger canoe. He wears board shorts and no shoes—so he can feel the sand between his toes—rather than the heavy boots and white-and-red snowsuit. You can learn about plenty of other Hawaiian holiday traditions this season by booking a memorable island getaway.
