Hawaii: America’s True Winter WonderlandPosted on 09/27/2017
While a Hawaii vacation is ideal at any time of year, visiting during the winter months comes with an extra added bonus (besides escaping the chilly weather at home). From December to May, magnificent humpback whales turn the warm Pacific waters surrounding the islands into their personal playground, offering endless opportunities to witness nature on display as they breech, play and bring forth their next generation.
There are six main vacation islands, each offering an ambiance and experience that is unique, but Oahu and Maui are the two most popular island choices—and for good reason!
Oahu is where the action is. No. 1 for visitor arrivals, Oahu is as convenient as it is captivating. You’ll find the most flights, a wide range of hotels and resorts, and an endless list of sights and attractions to explore. Bustling Waikiki is world renowned for its famous beach, but that’s just the beginning. Immerse yourself in the customs, culture and history of the islands at the Polynesian Cultural Center; visit the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor; and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of Hanauma Bay. Once the sun has set, Waikiki’s active nightlife invites you to indulge your palate at a variety of celebrity chef owned restaurants.
Maui has a well-deserved reputation for romance and its pampering spa resorts keep it a popular honeymoon destination, but families find it equally enthralling. From the lush waterfalls of the Iao Valley to the tranquil beaches of Ka‘anapali and Wailea to the unforgettable drive along the Road to Hāna, you’ll find breathtaking natural beauty at every turn. Be sure to watch the sunrise from the slopes of Haleakala for an experience you’ll always treasure.
