Hawaii Aleutian Standard Time (UTC: -10.00)
Best Time to Visit:
April to mid-June and September to mid-December are the least crowded times.
Aloha! Hawaii is one of my favourite holiday spots with it's beautiful beaches, incredible wildlife and delicious food scene.
Perfect for couples, families, relaxing escapes and adventurous expeditions, Hawaii has something for everyone. Here are just a few of my favourite things to see, do and eat in beautiful Oahu!
My Favourite Treats:
The Oreo Cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory
There are SO many treats that are on my must-eat list whilst in Hawaii (check out my Top 5 Oahu Eats List) - but this is another one of my favourites not on that list!
The Cheesecake Factory's Oreo Cheesecake is a family favourite - and it should come as no surprise as we all LOVE Oreos! (And you'll often find out suitcases packed with different flavours on the way home!)

My Favourites by Night
One of my favourite things to do in the evening is grab a cocktail at sunset at the Halekulani whilst listening to live music and watching the hula dancer perform. The hula dancers are usually a former Miss Hawaii and the atmosphere is amazing.
Another favourite place for a cocktail is Duke's Waikiki - and either option is the perfect start to a fun evening of teppanyaki at Tanaka of Tokyo or dinner at HY Steakhouse - both mentioned in my Top 5 Oahu Eats List
My Favourite Thing to Do With The Girls
My Favourite Place to Shop
Also, be sure to check out the outlet centres. You know I love a bargain and the outlet centres are one of my must visit places whilst in Hawaii as you're guaranteed to pick up a great deal!
My Favourite Lunch Spot
Their crab salad is amazing and perfectly paired with a long island iced tea. For dessert, be sure to try one of their signature chocolate chip cookies or try their popovers with strawberry butter. Yum!
A Little Bit of Fun
Rent a Car and Shop Up a Storm!
Remember you're in the US - shop up a storm at Target or Walmart and drive around the island to take in the sights.
Walmart is always a must visit for us as it means we can stock up on all of our favourite American treats to bring home!
A visit to Hawaii just isn't complete without a visit to Pearl Harbour. Their tours offer an incredible historical insight and are a must do whilst on the island.
