Did you know that Hawaii attracts around 10 million tourists each year?

If you’re like me, you love traveling to places that have a little bit of everything for every taste. As it turns out, Hawaii is the perfect place to sightsee, relax, and go on thrilling adventures.

Are you trying to figure out what to do in Hawaii? Keep reading to learn about 5 must-see Hawaii attractions.

1. Snorkeling and Submarine Scooter Rides

Hawaii tourists should take advantage of island life by doing activities that you can’t do in many other places. Since Hawaii is surrounded by tropical ocean, visitors have the best opportunities to go snorkeling or even ride in a submarine scooter. Make sure you bring along an underwater camera so you can document this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Although you can find great snorkeling spots anywhere in Hawaii, Disney Aulani is one of my top recommendations. Not only is this luxury resort suitable for families and travelers of any age, but one of its coolest attractions is the saltwater lagoon that’s home to thousands of exotic fish.

2. Volcanoes National Park

Volcanoes National Park is one of the most incredible things to do in Hawaii. Hawaii and other Pacific Islands exist because of the abundance of underwater volcanoes, so no trip there would be complete without visiting an active volcano. There are plenty of outdoor activities you can do there, but I’d suggest waking up early to watch the sunrise over the Kīlauea caldera.


3. Traditional Luau Party

Do you want to experience Hawaiian culture at its finest? If so, you’ll love attending a traditional luau party. You can feast, drink, and watch hula dancers and fire performances.

If you’re brave, you can even take dance lessons and learn how to make fire. A traditional luau party is an evening you’ll never forget.

4. Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial

Even if you’re not a history buff, the Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial is a must-see attraction if you visit Hawaii. Not only will you be able to see artifacts from the war, but insightful tour guides can also tell you more about Hawaii’s role in World War II. Since Pearl Harbor is close to downtown Honolulu, you can spend the morning learning about American history then explore the city when you’re done.

5. Ziplining and Other Outdoor Adventures

Hawaii is full of lush forests, massive waterfalls, and impressive mountains. This means that you could plan your entire trip around doing adrenaline-pumping activities. My top recommendation is to head over to CLIMB Works Keana Farms in Oahu to go on a 3-hour guided zipline tour. Soaring through the ocean and mountain landscape is an otherworldly experience.
