The Winter Walk In Hawaii That Will Positively Enchant You

When you think of a traditional holiday season, the Hawaiian Islands are probably the last place to cross your mind. But, if we’re being honest, we absolutely LOVE spending Christmas in Hawaii. Instead of snowstorms and cold weather, we have beach days — and you’ll still find all of your holiday favorites, from hot chocolate and sugar cookies to twinkling lights and holiday festivals. And, boy, do we know how to throw a holiday celebration. The Honolulu City Lights is not only the largest Christmas light display found across the state but it also quite a magical affair and it all begins on December 7th. The best part? You won’t have to bundle up to enjoy this incredible winter walk like our friends on the mainland might.

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/

The lights will stay lit throughout the holiday season, so you have plenty of time to enjoy this magical Christmas attraction. It’s sure to fill you with holiday spirit. The light display is always free and open to Hawaii residents and tourists alike. For more information, click here.
