agreed. but unfortunately the “magic” and blissful feeling seems to wear off too soon. especially with traffic woes and other slap-in-the-face reality situations.
Yeah, drunk guys peeing in the bushes isn’t “magical,” either.
wish it was like the old days when you could get there easy because it really is an awesome place
I wish parking wasn’t so expensive. Though I think $1 an hour at the zoo is still a steal.
I see Waikiki mostly from way off shore on my SUP. It’s way nicer being on the water looking towards the shore from a distance.
A lot of things look better from a distance! Hah!
Having recently had family come stay with me I had to take the requisite trip into Waikiki… which they loved… which means I had to take them there again, and again, etc.
Waikiki Beach is nice… But Waikiki itself, nuh uh.
Love the beach. Wish I could’ve seen what it looked like at the turn of the century. Bet the lineup was empty!
Cat, on the “Honolulu 100 Years in the Making DVD” they have bonus footage of Thomas Edison home movies from the late-1890s of Waikiki and Honolulu Harbor. Pretty amazing!
