Boomer Adventures in Hawaii
If you’re an active boomer looking for fun, you’ll find plenty of it in Hawaii. While lounging on the beach with a tropical drink in your hand is relaxing, Hawaii offers so much more. In between sun worshiping, plan an adventure from our list of first-hand reports.
Combine adventure with culture on the Big Island
It would take weeks to fully explore the Big Island. Some of our favorites include snorkeling on the Kona Coast, going off-the-beaten-path on a hike to a Green Sand Beach and exploring the remote Waip’io Valley by horseback. But, don’t forget that experiencing Hawaiian culture is an adventure too. Don’t miss a visit to Place of Refuge.
Do it all on the island of Kauai
All about Maui
If you only go one place in Hawaii head straight to Maui. In just a short time you can have the adventure of your life doing such things as whale watching, paragliding over Maui and seeing all of the island’s natural beauty by taking a helicopter ride over Maui.
Go off-the-beaten path on Moloka’i
Are you a boomer who prefers an authentic experience without tourist trappings? Moloka’i just might be the island for you. For a beautiful road trip, we recommend the road to the Halawa Valley. And, of course you’ll want to sink your toes into the golden sands of Papohaku Beach
History is the adventure on Ohau
A visit to the Arizona Memorial is a small but memorable part of the historical experience at Pearl Harbor on Oahu.
Adventures in dining
A loco moco is probably an artery clogging experience but you need to try it, at least once. Hawaii has become a hotbed for locally sourced food. Try our recommendations for slow food dining on the Big Island
Our favorite accommodations
It’s not fancy, but Alan thinks Hilltop Cottage on Moloka’i comes close to his idea of a tropical paradise. Looking for Aloha Spirit on the Big Island? You’ll find it at Waianuhea Bed and Breakfast. And if you’re looking for unassuming luxury at its finest, don’t forget to check out Maui’s incredible Montage Kapalua Bay!
