3 Reasons Waikīkī Is the Best Place to Vacation in Hawai'i, Honolulu, Hawaii

Hawai'i is one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, and if you’re planning a trip, it can be challenging to decide which part to stay in. For many, the world-famous Waikīkī Beach is a must, and you’ll find that the area has a number of advantages. From convenience to a variety of activities, consider the following before booking your vacation getaway.

Benefits of Staying in Waikīkī

1. Endless Activities

vacation-the-imperial-hawaii-resortWaikīkī has endless attractions, allowing you to have a new adventure every day. Nature enthusiasts can stroll through the Honolulu Zoo or explore the Waikiki Aquarium for an intimate experience with the island’s native creatures. Culture buffs can learn about Hawaiian history with a walk down Kalākaua Avenue and pay homage to the Duke Kahanamoku statue or listen to local artists sing songs about ancient Hawaiian legends. Grab souvenirs at the city’s many shopping areas like the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center or the International Market Place. Waikīkī is perfect for kids or couples looking to have fun, and the biggest problem you’ll have is finding the time to do everything you want on your vacation.

2. Easy Travel

When you visit Waikīkī, don’t worry about renting a car. Enjoy the many convenient transit options the moment you land at Daniel K. Inouye Airport. Shuttles take you directly to your hotel, and a public bus and trolley system makes it easy to travel throughout the city, ensuring you avoid the hassle of traffic and save money during your stay. Many of the area’s best attractions are a short distance from major hotels and located along the main walkable road, Kalākaua Avenue. 

3. Budget-Friendly

Waikīkī is a vacation paradise, and there are plenty of budget-friendly lodging options to choose from, so you’re sure to find a deal. Many hotels offer special packages that include spa days or excursions. Hawai'i has a temperate climate year round, so travel outside of the summer peak season to save additional money. If you plan to visit regularly, you might want to invest in a timeshare, so you’ll always have a place to stay in the future.
