Must do while there:
There's so much to see and do in Hawaii: relax on Hawaii's world famous beaches, attend an authentic Polynesian Luau, which is an exotic, South Pacific-style celebration of color, style, history, music, and dance. Stop by the Kauai's Waimea Canyon to take a tour of a volcano. It is often referred to as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific," because of its many panoramic views. Watch for whales. Throughout the months of November to April, the island of Maui becomes the destination of choice for humpback whales. Whale watching boats and sailings are abundant during this time of year. Visit the Diamond Head State Monument in Waikiki, Oahu which consists of a 760-foot tuff crater. The crater gained popularity in the 19th century when British sailors thought they found diamonds within the crater's slopes. The National Natural landmark is now a popular hiking destination.
