Honolulu, HI, is fast becoming a vibrant city!

With some of the world’s greatest beaches a short walk or drive away, the growth in Honolulu is helping the island of Oahu stake its claim even further as one of the world’s premiere destinations for travelers looking to experience the best of everything!

1. Night Market, Eat the Street, & More in Kaka’ako!!!

The developing Urban Arts District of Kaka’ako is becoming the home of many new residents.

More people means more things to do!  The Our Kaka’ako people have actively worked with artisans, restauranteurs, and more to create activities and events such as Night Market and Eat the Street that island residents and tourists flock to each week.

2. Go to the Beach!

This list is not like the AP or Coaches Top 25 Football Poll so no worries if beach bound isn’t the number one here in the list!

From Diamond Head Beach, to the whole of the Waikiki Strip, Ala Moana Beach Park, and Kaka’ako Waterfront Park, the South Shore has stretches of sand, sea, and land for you to bask in all of its greatness!

3. Eat!!!

Award-winning chefs?  We got that.  Hole in the wall epicness? We have that too.  Plate lunch?

We invented that!

There is something for everyone’s taste and in the last 5 years, Hawaii has seen a food explosion take place cities such as NYC, Chicago, and LA saw in the past decades.  Some people tease that Hawaii is too slow, nah, we just run on Hawaiian time.

Speaking of Hawaiian, make sure you try some Hawaiian food and not just the tourist luaus!

4. Visit Diamond Head 

Diamond Head is historic for many reasons! The view is truly a sight to behold and the storied bunkers of WWII keep their secrets to themselves, adding its own sense of awe to the islands.

The State recently made the hike easier so that more people could make it to the top.  Take your time, bring water, and enjoy the trek!

5. Get a Tattoo in Waikiki!


We have many who have walked into our tattoo studio in Honolulu from Canada and have made some great friends from the Great North over the years!  We got you next time you’re booking flights from Canada to Hawaii.
