Hawaii Vacation Travel Advice

You know that old saying “a little head’s up would have been nice?” Well, when it comes to travel, a little advance notice is always helpful, especially when you’re traveling a far distance. Throw in traveling to a tropical destination like Hawaii, and the more you know, the better off you’ll be. Here is some much needed Hawaii vacation travel advice to help you prepare for your upcoming trip to the islands.

1. The Weather
This is a tricky time of year to travel. In most places, the winter has taken control and it is just plain cold. However, here in Hawaii, it is nice and warm…and a little rainy. That doesn’t stop Hawaii from being a great vacation destination and you will have a ton of fun during your trip.

2. Plan Ahead
Making plans is the best way to ensure that your vacation is exactly what you want it to be. Especially when it comes to activities. Nearly 10 million visitors travel to Hawaii each year, so making reservations for the things you want to do is very important. You don't want to miss out on the top activities that you want to do, so make sure you book everything well in advance.

3. Embrace the Aloha Spirit
Aloha is everywhere in Hawaii, and the spirit that it embodies is a way of life throughout the islands. All you have to do is be kind, courteous, smile, use manners, and treat the island and its residence with respect.

4. Bring What You Need
Back in #1, we mentioned the weather, and this is where being prepared for warmer weather comes in very handy. The temperatures sit in the high 70s to low 80s most of the time and you may only need pants and a light jacket at night. Sometimes, not even that. Save space in your bag and bring just a couple of things that you will need, leave your heavy coat at home (if you can make it into the airport without it), and wear the same clothes home that you came in. This will all save valuable space and allow you to pack more for the warm weather.

5. Experience As Much As You Can
The most likely scenario is that you are only visiting for a short time. Most vacations last for a 7-10 days, and in that time, you can get a lot done. Consider doing everything, try new things, and experience as much of the Hawaiian Islands as you can. It will be well worth it.
