Senior Travel to Hawaii and Other Islands

Mar 11th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

Well let’s go “island hopping.”   Islands Magazine lets you choose from 140+ island destinations and learn about what makes it unique, where to stay while there, what travel specials are being offered, news from the island and more.  Here you may find your island dream destination.  A Digital Issue of this publication includes the 20 best islands to live on and 25 dream islands from the Caribbean to the South Pacific.  Their eightfeatured islands are St. Maarten, Bahamas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Isla Mujeres, Aruba, Big Island of Hawaii, Costa Rica and St. Barthelemy.   There are also eight Editor’s Picks.   The Ten Best Rooms With A View is now for view on this website along with a free trial issue.

 

First we begin with “Paradise” and that would be Hawaii.  I had the good fortune of spending two summers at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  Loved every moment, especially the lovely evening breezes.  I have not visited any other Hawaiian island than Oahu, but I will share with you what I have discovered about island travel all over the globe. 

 

I know of travelers who find their preference to always be an island destination.  Wikipedia will provide more than you will even want or need to know about Hawaii.  Wikipedia is always a super site for investigating any topic. By the way, “Wiki” is a Hawaiian word for “fast.”  Wikitravel follows suit with even more detailed information at http://wikitravel.org/en/Hawaii

 

The Island of Oahu is Hawaii all on one island and truly is the heart of Hawaii. Oahu is home to Hawaii’s State Capital, Honolulu, and often nicknamed “The Gathering Place”, attracting visitors from around the world to enjoy the unique culture, natural beauty and Aloha Spirit.  Discover the many sides of Oahu. Explore the lush, Windward Coast or take a beautiful, scenic drive to the legendary North Shore. Indulge in great shopping and dining in Waikiki and immerse yourself in the cool arts and culture scene in Hip and Historic Honolulu. 

Oahu is rich in culture and history with traditions that are alive. The warmth of her people, their traditions and a unique blend of cultures has created a place like nowhere else. Simply stated, Oahu has more to see, do and experience. Imagine your paradise and you’ll discover it’s all on the Island of Oahu, the Heart of Hawaii.  

Oahu is the third largest island in the Hawaiian chain. It is home to about three-fourths of the state’s population. Honolulu is the 11th largest U.S. metropolitan city. Waikiki, the most world-renowned site in Oahu, is the top visitor destination of the state. This manmade beach attraction encompasses 450 acres of top vacation fun, surf, hotels, shopping, dining, and entertainment. Of course there are abundant tourist attractions outside of Waikiki. The island is very geographically diverse with mountains, rainforests, volcanic craters, tropics, beaches, and much more.   There is so much to share about Hawaii that I will include more in a future blog.  Hope you enjoy your surfing.  jeb
