If Locals Do One Thing Before Tourism Opens Up In Hawaii, It Should Be A Visit To Waikiki

The Hawaiian Islands are home to one of the world’s most famous beach destinations: Waikiki. Located within Honolulu city limits and bound by Ala Wai Canal to the north and west, Kapahulu Avenue to the east, and the Pacific Ocean to the south, Waikiki is the most popular destination in Hawaii for beach-bumming, shopping, dining, entertainment, and activities, and is packed with luxury resorts and hotels. And right now —  with a global pandemic essentially halting all outside travel — now is the perfect time for locals to experience Waikiki without the crowds!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Tell us, have you visited Waikiki lately? What was it like without all the tourists? We bet it was quite different from the Waikiki you’ve come to know in recent years.
