Need some help planning a Hawaii trip. My wife and I (in our active 60s) will be arriving from PHL at 8:54 PM on July 1st and leaving July 16 at 8:55 PM for Anchorage. Both flights are to/from Honolulu.
We are looking for some suggestions where to stay and possible itineraries on a conservative budget. We would like to get in Pearl Harbor and the Road to Hana but don’t have to stay in the larger cities. We enjoy “off the beaten path” ideas. In Europe we like B&Bs, Pensions and lower budget hotels.
Any suggestions on places inside or outside the cities that won’t cost an arm and a leg? Do we need a car for the whole time or should I just get it for a few days on each island?
Near Honolulu we were looking at staying at the “Breakers” but the books give so many choices we are becoming overwhelmed.
Any help would be appreciated.
