    I was just there for a wedding. Get Kono’s Northshore Hawaiian BBQ in Waikiki. Ice Monster shave ice is right by there too and is amazing.

    On the north/east side of the Island check out Kailua and Lanikai beach area. Great kayaking there. Nearby is Lanikai Brewing Company if you like a good brewery.

    Really enjoyed doing the glass bottom boat tour as well. That’s about $35 per person. Try to hike Diamond Head Crater as well. That’s the only hike I did but it was amazing and only took a couple hours total.

    Also, if you don’t have a car you can find things called Biki bikes in the downtown/Waikiki area that are for rent for like $25 for 300 minutes of use until you can buy one of your own (or a moped or something lol). Seem’s like there’s a good bus system there too.

    on the real @Slyk there's a water shortage in hawaii rn and native hawaiians are being asked by the government to conserve water in favor of tourism so def be nice to the locals lol.

    recurring theme i've heard from others is that the locals aren't a fan of the tourists as a whole. will be given lots of s--- as a "haole", thought i've been told that i might pass for a light skinned native.

    :) i did a self-guided tour a handful of years ago when i was out there. hung at the beach where they filmed the pilot + another one where they had their og camp on the beach...there were small remnants of some of the old props, but most had been picked over at that point.
