What to Do
HAWAIIAN CULTURE Enjoy free ukulele
and hula lessons and lei making at the Royal
Hawaiian Shopping Center, centrally located in
Waikiki. How about a multigenerational hukilau
hula photo? This and much more is available;
check the schedule. Did we mention these activ-
ities are free? royalha waiiancenter.com
PEARL HARBOR If you are lucky enough to
have a veteran from World War II in the family, adding a Pearl Harbor tour is a must. There
are many ways to experience this national
park, but to make sure it doesn’t take the
entire day, go early and avoid the big crowds.
SURF LESSONS Book a group lesson and then
have your own family tournament with prizes.
Instead of who rode the longest wave, awards
can go to who stood up. It’s not an accident
that Oahu is the surf capital of the world: the
water is always pleasant. Go for a school that
can accommodate large groups. hhsurf.com
