Take This Road Trip Through Hawaii’s Most Picturesque Small Towns For A Charming Experience

With nearly two-thirds of the Hawaiian population residing in Honolulu and the surrounding areas, it can feel as though the entire island of Oahu is one huge city. Luckily, it’s not – technically. Whenever you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Honolulu, you can head to any of the island’s charming small towns. These Oahu towns are full of old-world Hawaiian charm, history, adorable shops, and positively breathtaking views.

From coastal communities to inland cities, this epic Oahu road trip measures in at 76 miles, just under two hours of driving time, and stops in eight of the island’s most charming and picturesque small towns – from Wahiawa to Hawaii Kai.

Is there anything better than a good road trip? Perhaps a budget road trip around Oahu, or an Oahu waterfalls road trip?
