Any time is a great time for a Hawaiian getaway, but a wave of new offerings for 2015 make this the year to visit the Aloha State.
The National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai, for example, premieres an 800-foot self-guided tour this year that tells the story of Earth’s 450 million years through plant life. Coral Crater Adventure Park opens in Oahu with family-friendly zip lines and off-roading excursions. For its 125th anniversary, Honolulu’s Bishop Museum debuts an exhibit exploring Hawaiian history through photos and interactive activities.
“Travelers can find excellent value during the summer in Hawaii,” says Michelle Donato, founder and owner, Concierge Realty. “Fun in the sun here can mean admiring natural wonders, surfing, hiking old train tracks atop a mountain and more. Go parasailing or snorkeling. Take an aerial tour or a submarine excursion for a firsthand look at Hawaii’s incredible ocean life. Or, simply kick back on a gorgeous beach and watch the palm trees sway in the breeze.”
