Things not to miss for a trip of a lifetime

This is our first trip and we don't want to miss a thing.....what are the highlights, must sees, must dos, must eats, must shops.

Would appreciate any advice. We are vegetarian and are going to be in Waikiki.

On the Oahu forum, on the left side of the page click on Before You Go & Things to Do. These are written by forum members & have a lot of great info.

Do the same on the Hawaii forum.

Do the same on the Maui (or Kauai forum, or Island of Hawaii forum or other island you may plan on going to)

Websites for tourism, newspapers, restaurants, blogs and more for the islands:

This is one of the best lists that I have ever seen, Dusty!! I wish I had the save button now.

A couple of updates:

"On the Oahu forum, on the left side of the page click on Before You Go & Things to Do. These are written by forum members & have a lot of great info."

:"Before You Go" has been replaced by "Travel Guide". Still has the same good info.

'Horizons', the evening show at PCC, has been replaced by a new show, 'Ha Breath of Life'. It is more spectacular than 'Horizons' was.

I have added a couple of things to the two driving tours and added some info for a driving tour #3 in Honolulu. I placed the info in the "Travel Guide" section on the left side of the page on the Oahu Forum.

Nice restaurant site. You can sort by area, price or cuisine.

http://www.eatouthawaii.com/

When you click on a restaurant name, after it loads you can scroll down to a menu (most restaurants listed have a menu). Click on the menu to enlarge.
