LIVE MUSIC VENUES in HAWAII

A subject we haven’t really gone into are all the LIVE MUSIC Venues in and around Honolulu and Waikiki.

People come all over the world to mingle in our oceans, hike our trails and sunbathe on some of the most beautiful beaches on Earth…but people also come here to wine and dine as well as dance the night away listening to great live music.

Today we give you the MOST COMPLETE LIST of Live Music Venues…some have Live music every night and others only a few nights a week, but everyone that is on this list allows you to get close and personal with the bands and musicians as many of these live music venues are small and intimate allowing you to be right in the middle of the music and get up close to the artists. That’s one of the things we love about Hawaii…all the seats are good seats when you go to a venue that has live music in Hawaii.

SEASONS of HAWAII

seasons-of-hawaii

Today we talk about the Seasons of Hawaii…Winter is upon us so you need to know the differences if you plan on vacationing here during that time or if this is your first year living here. Hawaii has two major seasons…SUMMER and WINTER. These Seasons DO HAVE major differences…WINTER brings cooler temps, Rainbows, Rain, Waterfalls, Tropical Green Rainforests, Humpback Whales and the BIG North Shore Waves as well as very ruff seas and winds. SUMMER brings warmer temps, less wind, less rainbows, very little rain, not many waterfalls, dryer browner forests and mountain ranges, no Whales, no Big surf, calm seas and less winds which makes for prime Snorkeling and scuba diving.

So before you come to Hawaii know WHY you are coming here and what you want to see or do…if you come here in SUMMER to see Humpback Whales you won’t be seeing them…if you come here in WINTER to go snorkeling…unfortunately…YOU WON’T BE…and if you come to see Waterfalls DON’T come in SUMMER!

PLAN YOUR TRIP ACCORDINGLY…and if you just moved here know what you can and can’t do during the seasons.

Going Local on Your Hawaii Vacation

The election is finally over and Wayde is,  of course, one a happy camper! Thrilled about the outcome and extreamly excited about Donald Trumps plans,  he’s obviously not alone. Bruce on the other hand is very disappointed, sad and thinks the American people got duped. He points out that HRC did win the popular vote and had the shoe been on the other foot, Wayde would have been crying and bitching about the democracy. As usual the system is fine when you’re on the winning side of the coin.

Today we’re joined by some awesome podcast friends (also Trump supporters) in the studio to talk about something we can all agree on, Making your Hawaii Vacation local.

Jim and his family share their story of family and friendship that led to a Hawaii Vacation. Here for a week from Pennsylvania, they talk about how they found us, reached out and are having a much better vacation because of the information we share on our podcast.
