    We are arriving in Hawaii for a couple of weeks this coming Friday. We will visit Honolulu, Kahuliu, Hilo, Kona, and Kauai. What are some good excursions from those cities, sights to see, yada. I like to scuba and sports fish offshore. I like to sail and can bareboat a 40ish mono or cat.

    We will stay on Oahu for the last week of the trip. I'd like to look at Oahu as a future home. I know a week isn't much but its a start. I'm thinking of the Big Island, Maui and Oahu as places to live. I've been thinking we would

    Any idea and help will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    It is very expensive to live in Hawaii. I have several friends that live there & love it. They live in Maui.

    I kind of feel sorry for the native Hawaiian people. Their beautiful paradise is overrun with tourists & resorts.

    Saying that I'd probably be one of those annoying outsiders that would be move there if able.

    My daughter is stationed in Hawaii now and it is very costly. She has no desire to live there forever.

    The traffic is horrible on Oahu. To go 10 miles (in or out of Honolulu) you're going to be in the car for 45 minutes. And that's on top of the expensive prices you pay for everything from housing to restaurants.

    A decent 3 bedroom apartment on Oahu? Better than 2 grand a month.

    Also it's a pain to go see anyone or have family come in because it's so costly... On top of a brutal plane ride.

    I thought Hawaii was terrific as far as the weather goes. How could you complain?

    But I would soon grow sick of the limited types of foods/restaurants/entertainment that one has access to on the mainland.

    Moral of the story is Oahu SUCKS! I've lived on the Big Island all my life expect for 2 years and its awesome if u like a slower paced life style, nothing city like about the place. If you are coming to Kona theres all kinds of stuff to do, Anything you can think of to do in the ocean should be available to you for a price. If you have the time and have a 4x4 vehicle id suggest driving out to South Point and going to the green sand beach. Hilo side i would suggest going to the Volcano National Park.
