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.
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 display of Honolulu Christmas lights found across the state but it is also quite a magical affair. The best part? You won’t have to bundle up to enjoy this incredible winter walk like our friends on the mainland might. And that’s definitely something to celebrate.
The Honolulu City 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 on exact dates and times as well as all the festivities, be sure to check out the Honolulu Christmas lights website. Will you be headed to Honolulu Hale for opening night, or will you wait a little longer in order to catch the beauty without the crowds?
