Sitting on the beach watching all the fireworks go off at the Hilton in Waikiki.
The big island, Hawaii has two major sides. The dry side is Kona and the wet is Hilo. There is a lot to do and see and a car rental is a good idea. Although the car rental agencies don’t want you to do this, the Saddle road through the center of the island is now paved and just not a problem to drive. Also, an ordinary car can make it up Mauna Kea to the observatories. Coming down you need to to use a low gear or you will over heat the breaks. If you like this video, checkout my underwater video of swimming with Manta Rays at night. This is a must do if you are every in Kona!
