Welcome to So much more Hawaii, a blogger’s view of paradise
-by Traveling Canucks I’ll admit I was a little intimidated when I learned that my #seeMaui itinerary had me bike riding down Haleakala Volcano. At over 10,000 feet above sea level, it’s roughly 25% higher than the peak of Whistler Mountain. Translation – this ain’t no bunny hill! I had visions of full suspension downhill [...]
Why run indoors on a treadmill when you’re surrounded by paradise? With Hawaii’s ideal year-round weather and beautiful scenery, getting outdoors for that cardio workout is all the easier to do. Tie your shoelaces and take advantage of these jogging routes around the Hawaiian Islands: Around Magic Island (Oahu) – This beach atmosphere invites more [...]

Though Sweeney had done some English style riding years earlier, my experience had been a few rides on a friend’s horse; in that the goal there [...]
This article originally appeared in October 2012 on Dallas Nagata White’s blog. Below is a snippet from Dallas and her husband Ed’s experience on Kauai Island.

Visiting Molokai is like entering a time machine and journeying to a past Hawaii, where the only crowd is at the Friday night party at Hula Shores Restaurant. Here, the hustle and bustle of more urbanized islands has apparently been banned – in fact, the island’s highest speed limit is a sedate 45 MPH. Getting [...]
This story originally appeared here on FamilyVacationCritic.com: My husband Quent and I left the kids at home for a recent five-night trip to Oahu. We would have loved to have brought them along, but with school still in session (not to mention the additional airfare it would cost us) they stayed back in Colorado with [...]
The following is a guest blog by Jennifer Holcomb. Welcome to our world. Here at Destination 3° challenges do not go uncontested and dreams are never not mostly reality. At least in our heads. When we sent our channel crossing idea out into the world, we thought it was a little different from the start, [...]
The following is a guest blog from Aileen Torres and the original article can be found here. I landed in Kona, on the Big Island of Hawaii, Thursday afternoon. I’m staying at King Kamehameha, as are a lot of the Ironman athletes. The hotel is the site of the big race, and it’s hard to [...]
