The Magical Polar Express Train Ride In Hawaii Everyone Should Experience At Least Once

The Hawaiian Islands may not be the winter wonderland you were dreaming of this holiday season – except at the summit of Hawaii Island’s Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa – but that doesn’t mean you won’t find all of the Christmas cheer you need to get into the holiday spirit across the Hawaiian Islands. Oahu’s got the beautiful Honolulu City Lights, Kauai has a magnificent Festival of Lights, and Maui is home to the one and only Sugar Cane Train’s Holiday Express.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
