Take This Road To Nowhere In Hawaii To Get Away From It All

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.
Sometimes, you just need to hop in the car and drive with no particular destination in mind, and luckily for those of us who live on Oahu, there is a road that seemingly never ends. The road goes by quite a few names as it makes its way around the small island of Oahu – H-1 Freeway, Kalanianaole Highway, Hawaii Route 72, Kamehameha Highway, and Hawaii Route 83 as they meander in a large loop from Honolulu to Waimanalo, up the eastern coast to the north shore, and then back South through Wahiawa and Mililani.
Not only is driving this massive 100-mile loop an excellent way to spend a Saturday and explore parts of the island you’ve never seen before, but it is also might alleviate some of that island fever you may be experiencing.
