When you look at a map, Hawaii may seem small, but once you get there you will find that it is bigger than it looks. There are hundreds of places to see and things to do in Hawaii, so it can be tough to decide what to do. Here are a few activities that you might want to consider doing.
How would you like to see the Grand Canyon of the Pacific? Waimea Canyon was called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific by Mark Twain. It is located on the island of Kauai and is the rainiest spot on Earth. You’ll be left speechless, when you see its rugged walls and lush vegetation.
Want to see where Hawaii produces some of its most famous agricultural exports, like kona coffee, macadamia nuts, kava, anthurium flowers or orchids? Well you can take a farm tour. The best island for a farm tour is the Big Island as it has the highest concentration of farms in the state. When you visit a farm, farm operators often give samples of their produce, so don’t forget to sample their wares.
Are you an adrenaline junky? You should try riding a bike down Haleakala Mountain. It stands over 10,000 feet tall and its sharp switchbacks makes for an awesome descent. At sunrise or sunset, the views are simply spectacular. But make sure that you concentrate on the road as there are some huge drops at the edge of the road.
No visit to Hawaii would be complete without a luau. A luau is a Hawaiian feast with lots of good food, local music and hula dancing. You will get to enjoy kalua pig which is cooked in an underground oven called an imu and you can even sample poi, which is a paste-like food made from taro. For most people, eating poi for the first time is a memorable experience, but not necessarily a good one as it is an acquired taste.
