I decided to just do it... drop everything and go in October. I need a real vacation, my condos were available on bonus time (Trendwest really does rock!), and the airfare was reasonable. So, I get to visit my 48th state... only North Dakota and Alaska will remain on the list.
So, who's been there, and what advice?
Here's the travel plan so far:
Fly into Honolulu by mid-day and stay over one night. Pearl Harbor and Waikiki are a must.
Quick flight that evening to Maui for 3 nights. No special Plans
Quick flight to Kona for 4 nights. Again, no special plans except a one day trip visiting the volcano.
I'm not doing it "on the cheap", so a few events (wife wants to swim with dolphins) that cost are not out of the question.
Ideas?! (Oh, and we'll be renting a car on each leg, so we have the transportation)
