And actually Hawaii is even more than all of that. Each one of Hawaii’s islands is unique. If you’ve seen one, you certainly have not seen them all.
Kauai, the most northern island in Hawaii’s chain, is distinctive for its extraordinary natural beauty. The lush tropical vegetation has earned Kauai the nickname "The Garden Island." Kauai highlights include stunning Wiamea Canyon, known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”
Oahu is the home to Hawaii’s state capital, Honolulu, and the largest portion of Hawaii’s population. Here dad can visit Dole’s pineapple fields, watch world-class surfing with the giant waves of the North Shore, and take an exciting outrigger canoe ride (see photo). In downtown Honolulu he can even enjoy cultural activities such as art museums, symphony concerts, and theater.
Maui, the second largest island, is the "windsurfing capitol of the world." And its most iconic activity is watching a spectacular sunrise from the top of the Haleakala crater, as did Mark Twain who said of his experience,”It’s the most sublime thing I ever saw.” On Maui dad can also hang-glide, take a glider ride, or even clamber through the caves of a real lava tube.
Hawaii's Big Island is larger than all of the other islands combined, and is vast enough that it amazingly holds 11 of the world's 13 climatic zones. Here dad can see everything from cattle ranches to active volcanoes, from coffee plantations to mango groves. He can bask on sandy beaches or hike above the timberline on snow-capped mountains.
Hawaii offers something for every kind of dad, all amidst tropical beauty and friendly people. The entire family can hula dance, make flower leis, prepare fresh mahi mahi, snack on succulent papaya, and eat shave ice.
As you can see, like a delicious smorgasbord Hawaii offers a wonderful variety for every taste. And if your family travels on a budget, the secret to an affordable Hawaiian vacation is - a timeshare rental.
For example, timeshare rentals on Oahu are currently starting at just $99/night, right in the heart of Waikiki.
So if dad is dreaming of going to Hawaii but you think the family can’t afford it – think again, and check out Hawaii timeshare rentals for a once in a lifetime Father's Day gift.
