Oahu, Hawaii

posted in: Travel | 0

Trip to Honolulu, Hawaii to visit Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor and the island of Oahu. The plane tickets for this trip were bought with $600 Delta vouchers earned on New Years Eve 2014 on our way back from Boston. MSP-DFW was oversold, so we spent a night in MSP (temps nearing -10°F) and had enough voucher to cover the $483 RT DFW-HNL flight. We stayed in the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Alana – Waikiki Beach which was pretty good accommodations for the money. In retrospect, I wish I had paid a little more to stay on the beach in the Hilton Waikiki Beach Resort, but the walk to the beach was not too bad.

We visited Pearl Harbor, Waikiki Beach, and rented a car and drove around the island visiting the north shore and Makapu‘u Point.
