There are several new and fun things happening on the Hawaiian Islands!
In Honolulu, O’ahu:
Launched in June, Bikeshare Hawaii has set up 100 Biki racks throughout Honolulu in areas such as Waikiki, Dimaond Head, and Ala Moana, with 1,000 total bikes in operation. Pronounced bee-key (Biki), this is the first bike-share program to come to the islands! Cruise down the Waikiki strip or Downtown Honolulu much faster, and it is cheaper than taking a taxi!
On the island of Lana’i:
Held every fifth Friday in the middle of the town at Dole Park a community event features live music, food and drinks. This is a great way to meet the locals!
On the island of Kaua’i:
After a long day of exploring the Napali Coast and the hidden beaches hit the town of Lihu’e for a variety of food truck finds! Porky’s food truck offers a hot dog topped with kalua pig, pineapple relish and their own barbecue sauce. You can’t miss the Wailua Shaved Ice – gone are the articifical dyes and flavors; instead are creations with fresh passion fruit, vanilla bean and milk.
