Several in-depth features introduce you to special aspects of Hawaii, including detailed discussions on the hula, golfing in Hawaii, and the story of the lei. This completely updated guide takes you on a walk around historic Honolulu, as well as through historic Lahaina; and a drive around the geologically fascinating Crater Rim in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Sidebars on experiential travel reveal how to attend a luau like a local, zip-line on Kauai, and enjoy Hawaii's healing arts. The guide describes the history and culture of Hawaii, and is full of practical information, including how to get around the region, an extensive list of handpicked hotels and restaurants, and selective activities and entertainment options.
