Waikiki Beach is a dream vacation destination. I have taken my family there for many summers. There are many accommodations to pick from the budget hotels to the luxury beachfront hotels. Since I rarely spend much time in the hotel I usually pick a moderate hotel close to the beach. There is so much to do in Waikiki. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance from most hotels. You can find all types of food at all kinds of prices. I like to go shopping on the main street called Kalakaua Ave. My favorite place to shop at is called The International Market Place. There I can buy souveniers, eat at the food court and grab some snacks. It has been there a very long time. It was even featured in some movies. My favorite thing to do is anything that has to do with water. I love the water. I have done scuba, snuba, surfing, jet skiing, snorkeling and swimming. I love the fact that there are all levels of activities for everyone. I love to hike the trails in Hawaii too. I have climbed Diamond Head and seen beautiful Waikiki from the highest point in the island. You can just relax or do like I do and immerse yourself in the culture. This is like a second home to me. Locals are so friendly and if you ask them they will tell you some of the hidden places to check out not found on any map. If you ever get a chance to visit Waikiki you will fall in love with it as much as I have. Aloha!
