This Week Hawaii

This Week Hawaii is your go-to resource when planning your time in paradise. We’re dedicated to providing you with tips, advice and insights so you can enjoy your time across the islands.

This Week Hawaii

Oahu, also known as The Gathering Place, is the hub of government, military and commerce. It's a busy bee of an island with many shopping, dining and activities opportunities. Outlying areas are yours to explore offering a more relaxed feel. Rent a car or join a tour to see what's out there!

The Valley Isle of Maui has been rated one of the world's top islands for many year. Not as busy as Oahu, yet, not as laid back as Kauai, Maui is just right! Experience the road to Hana. And, of course, catching the sunrise (or sunset!) at Haleakala National Park is a must. Be sure to make your reservation!
