This is my tenth trip to Hawaii. By now I've done all of the traditionally touristy things (a few times), and have developed a short list of favorites. These aren't necessarily the best things to do or even worthwhile, but they're a few of my favorites. Lately I've been focusing on the food in Hawaii, which continues to get more and more amazing during each visit. If you follow me on Instagram, there's a better and more detailed account of Hawaii's terrific food.
One of Hawaii's biggest cliches: the wonderfully crowded & campy Waikiki Beach
The ubiquitous ABC store, purveyors of all things Hawaiian
My favorite place in Hawaii: the Moana Surfrider Hotel
A great place for drinks: the Royal Hawaiian Hotel
The International Marketplace is full of kitschy crap, but still fun
The Moana Surfrider Mai Tai: the best Mai Tai in Hawaii
The Royal Hawaiian Mai Tai: the second best Mai Tai in Hawaii
