Author’s Note

O‘ahu’s nickname is the gathering place, and for good reason. It’s where many first time visitors to Hawai‘i choose to go, especially families with children. They’ve heard of Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, Diamond Head and Honolulu and they are excited to see those places. You won’t be disappointed. But there is so much more to O‘ahu than what you see on the postcards. I have so much fun exploring this island that I can’t wait to show you all the wonders that O‘ahu has to offer.

What Readers Have to Say

“I’m sure you get emails like this all the time, but I love your guidebook. When my wife and I were in our local Barnes & Noble looking through guidebooks for our trip to Kauai, yours stood out because of your writing style and humor. Your description of it being more like advice from a friend than a dry guidebook was dead on. Your use of aerial photography and arrows made it so much easier to understand where each hotel was located as well. I’m truly surprised that no one else has done that.”
