Are you looking for things to do this Mahalo-ween? Hawaii celebrates Halloween with a fun mix of cultural heritage and scary good times.

Of course, vacations should be fun, and how can anyone not have fun in Hawaii, but we need to travel the right way. That means responsible travel. The concept of responsible travel simply means to respect the environment and cultures of anywhere you travel. Wherever you travel it's important to avoid contributing waste and disturbing the natural ecosystems, while simultaneously embracing local cultures. This is the best way to reduce your carbon footprint.
The Islands of Hawaii have something for everyone. Whether you want to just relax in the sun or if in the mood for adventure, Hawaii has what you are looking for. Take a break from the beach and explore some of the Island’s best attractions and landmarks.
While not as well known as Waikiki or the North Shore, Oahu’s southeast and east (Windward) shore beaches are worth exploring. Windward means the eastern side of the island as wind blows east to west on Hawaii. The area also receives more rainfall than other parts of Oahu, creating lusher, greener views.
Hawaii is a state that is filled with history. From when King Kamehameha the Great unified all the Hawaiian Islands in 1810 to when the Hawaiian monarchy ended in 1893. From Polynesians arriving in Hawaii 1500 years ago to immigrants from Japan, China, Korea, Puerto Rico, Portugal, Russia and the Philippines coming to work on the plantations, Hawaii has such a unique combination of cultures. All of this is seen and felt in the historic sites all around Oahu.
While Hawaii is always fun, it’s not always inexpensive. However, there are lots of free things to do throughout Oahu if you know where to look. From beautiful beaches to spectacular hikes, we can help you make the most of your trip… and your dollar. Here are a few of our favorite things to do that won’t break your budget:
