Sunset in Hawaii. Photo by Ted Trimmer.
So often, I hear tourists complain that there is no culture in Hawaii. They say that all people do is go to the beach. Boring, they say.
There’s a lot to experience – such as concerts, operas, musicals, plays, informative lectures about astronomy and other topics, art museums, galleries and exhibits, Polynesian Cultural Center, Bishop Museum (Hawaiian artifacts), Made in Hawaii Festivals, craft fairs, as well as night clubs, shopping centers and world class restaurants.
Moreover, if you’re tired of Oahu, you can travel to the neighbor islands and see the erupting volcano on the Big Island, swim with the dolphins in Waikoloa, watch the sunrise at Mount Haleakala, and so on.
Above all, it’s never so frigid here that one has to wear a winter coat, gloves, and boots. Nah, I wear a muumuu night and day, and only don a sweater now and then. No need to shovel snow, either.
It’s paradise, after all. Paradise is never boring.
