The local flavor of Oahu: Hawaiian shave ice

The local flavor of Oahu: Hawaiian shave ice Oct 17th, 2011 at 2:00PM: The recipe for Hawaii's signature dessert is simple: fill a cup with a mound of finely shaved ice and then top it off with a sugary syrup of your choice. If you want to get creative, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or azuki bean paste at the bottom of the cup, or top it off with a "snow cap"-some sweetened, condensed milk drizzled over the top. Although the recipe seems like a piece of...

Top ten overrated U.S. travel destinations/attractions

Top ten overrated U.S. travel destinations/attractions Oct 14th, 2010 at 4:30PM: Whether or not you're an American, there are certain places that are on almost everyone's must-visit list. Some tourist traps, like the Grand Canyon or Disneyland, are worth joining the masses and ponying up the entrance fee (although I just checked the Magic Kingdom's website, and Mickey and friends are bilking the parents of children under nine for $68 a pop). Other much-lauded, highly...

Beach-bound? Head to these best beaches on the west coast Jul 4th, 2010 at 11:00AM: Hanging 10 in Hawaii? Settling along the California coast? If the West is your destination this summer, don't miss a day at one of these fabulous west coast beaches. Not only are they free, they offer plenty to do if a day in the sand gets dull (although, we can't imagine it would)! Kaanapali Beach - Maui – West Maui's Ka'anapali Beach is undoubtedly is easily accessible by a concrete...

Tour Honolulu via the Marathon course

Tour Honolulu via the Marathon course Dec 13th, 2009 at 1:00PM: The Honolulu Marathon is being held this morning here on Oahu -- and it's a beautiful day in paradise. Taking a tour of the Honolulu Marathon course basically gives you a comprehensive idea of Honolulu's best sights. The marathon begins on Ala Moana Boulevard, which in Hawaiian means "path by the ocean." The actual starting line is located in beautiful Ala Moana Beach Park, a peaceful...

Photo of the Day (10.24.09)

Photo of the Day (10.24.09) Oct 24th, 2009 at 6:00PM: Talk about a gorgeous sunset! I must have said this before, but I'll say it again: I love Hawaii. I'm almost positive this photo's been enhanced, but I have to say sunsets in Hawaii actually look like this all the time. Really. Today's photo comes to use from arbpdx1, who has a really great photostream on Flickr, complete with family and travel photos. If you have some great travel shots...

Through the Gadling Lens: inspirational nature shots from our Gadling Flickr pool

Through the Gadling Lens: inspirational nature shots from our Gadling Flickr pool Oct 15th, 2009 at 11:00AM: As you know by now, today we're bringing attention to climate change and ecotravel here on Gadling. Personally, climate change and taking care of the environment is an issue that I've thought about a whole lot since becoming a parent -- and to be honest, my daughter has become pretty passionate about it herself ("Mom, you forgot to turn off your computer! You have to save the environment!" is not...

Oahu's Best Beaches

Oahu's Best Beaches Jul 20th, 2009 at 6:00PM: It's time to take a trip around the ever-famous island of Oahu for a beach bopping bonanza (I couldn't help myself with the alliteration)! There are so many worthy beaches on this small but populated island that I'll be breaking down my favorite beaches all the way around. There are seven of 'em (there was no way I could narrow down the list), so let's get started. Magic Island: Your visit to...

Saturday Night Live pokes fun at Hawaiian tourism: Some thoughts

Saturday Night Live pokes fun at Hawaiian tourism: Some thoughts Mar 14th, 2009 at 1:30PM: Back when Jon Stewart's The Daily Show poked fun at Butte, Montana because of the Berkeley Pit, the shut-down copper mine that's almost filled to the brim with toxic water, and is a tourist site anyway, I felt bad. I love Butte, Montana and visit every summer. It was one of my budget travel options back in January. The Daily Show's version of Butte did not do it justice. Now Hawaii is in the fray...

Galley Gossip: The second best thing about being a flight attendant - Waikiki, Hawaii

Galley Gossip:  The second best thing about being a flight attendant - Waikiki, Hawaii Oct 10th, 2008 at 11:00AM: It was Monday morning and we (my mother, my husband, my son, and I) were in the rental car, a bright red Malibu, on our way from a relaxing long weekend in Ko Olina to the Honolulu airport, when I heard a long sigh from the back seat. "I don't want to leave," said my mother, also a flight attendant, as she stared out the window at a city she once called home forty years ago. Believe it or not,...
