Mid June 2019 (14-24) our family of three (DW, DS (17), and myself) are heading to Hawaii. This trip is a combination 25 anniversary & history trip. My plan is 3 nights on Oahu followed by 6 nights on Maui. I have a thread going in the Maui forum (or will shortly) for that part, but I want to get some additional input for our short Oahu leg.
Our flight will take us from BWI to DFW to HNL on 6/14.
Out flight back will reverse this except leaving from OGG on 6/23 (overnight flight arriving on 6/24)
Right now I'm leaning towards staying at the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort.
Our plan is as follows:
Friday 6/14 Arrive in afternoon and just settle in/relax on the beach.
Saturday 6/15 hit up Pearl Harbor (Arizona, Missouri, Bowfish, Pacific Aviation Museum) Basically an all day history/museum tour adventure.
Monday 6/17 fly to Maui.
I'm not sure about doing a Luau on Oahu or Maui. I'm leaning towards Maui to not pack much into the first island,and we have 6 nights on Maui, so plenty of time for a Luau there.
Looking for suggestions on places to eat while in Oahu. Our Maui stay is at a condo (Royal Kahana) where we plan to make most of our meals and dine out mostly for dinner.
