Take This Amazing 2-Day Getaway In Hawaii If You Need A Break From Real Life
The Hawaiian Islands are an absolute paradise… for anyone who is on vacation. But for those of us that live here, the tiny frustrations that come along with island life can often be too much to handle. Vacations elsewhere are expensive, but island hopping can be a relatively cheap and easy way to get away from the stress of everyday life. And if you’re already feeling the January slump, this perfect two-day getaway to the smallest of Hawaii’s six main islands – Lanai – is sure to provide all the rest + relaxation you need.
You see, the island is home to only one school that serves the entire island, and you won’t find a single traffic light here. Also known as the Pineapple Island, for its past as an island-wide pineapple plantation, the island measures in at only 141 square miles. The island is home to 3,100 residents, and approximately 98 percent of the land is owned by Larry Ellison, founder and chairman of Oracle.

Round trip tickets leaving early on a Saturday morning and returning late Sunday night will run you approximately $150 from Honolulu on Hawaiian Airlines – or you could always take the ferry from Maui to Lanai. How’s that for a cheap, adventure-packed two-day getaway?
