With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
From the first Europeans visiting the islands in 1778 and the establishment of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1795 to Hawaii’s admittance to the United States of America in 1959, the Hawaiian Islands are steeped in history, heritage, and culture. And while the Aloha State has undoubtedly undergone monumental change throughout its history, there are some places where you can still experience old Hawaii, including this enchanting tropical oasis that should be on everyone’s Hawaii bucket list.
The Polynesian Cultural Center is located at 55-370 Kamehameha Hwy., Laie, HI 96762, and is open 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. They are closed Monday. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit their website. You can also follow them on Facebook.
