It's hard to believe it's already been a year since we visited Hawaii for a friend's wedding. He's since moved to San Diego, but I think all our hearts stayed in Honolulu. Here are nine standouts from our four days in Oahu.
As I pack for our Hawaiian getaway (which I still can't believe starts this week!), I'm slowly slipping into an island state of mind to the sounds of reggae, rhythm -- and a dash of the Beach Boys, of course.
Playlist: A Tropical Getaway
Whether you're lazily swaying in a hammock, or taking a moment's escape from the fluorescent office haze, this island playlist will bring out your sunny spirit. Aloha, everyone!
Later this month, we're heading to Hawaii for a friend's wedding. We're going to split our time between Oahu and Maui -- very similar to a childhood trip I took years ago.
Chris has been to Oahu, but never to Maui -- and I can't wait for him to see it! It's certainly more laid-back than Honolulu, although there's still a lively buzz and plenty to explore.
Here are some of the things I'm most excited for this time around! Any must-see's I should add to the list? Please share!
From the moment you land, you can just tell it's a lush tropical paradise. I've never seen such vibrant flowers and greenery. As Chicago anxiously awaits our springtime blooms, I can't wait to be surrounded by palm trees and exotic plants.
There's nothing better than having the ocean at your doorstep, and Maui's string of resorts take it to the next level. While we'll probably spend most of our time exploring the island, I'm already looking forward to kicking back with an evening mai tai and watching the sun set over Kaanapali Beach.
