Hey guys! I'll be coming out to Oahu in 2 days for a week. Any places I should check out? Going with my woman and a few others. Places to eat? Nightlife? Things to see?

Let me know. I can't wait!

hmm... well besides the usual spots like the various malls and waikiki, you should also hit up some of the hiking trails here. if you decide to go out to the windward side of the island, which is really beautiful and green, there's two places that i would recommend you folks trying; Cinnamon's, who are known for their red velvet pancakes http://www.cinnamonsrestaurant.com/ and Boots and Kimos http://www.honolulumagazine.com/Hon...ts-and-Kimos-Homestyle-Kitchen/listing/21491/ . i'm sure the other local members here can chime in about these two restaurants. if you're going to be mostly in the downtown/waikiki area, there's the honolulu zoo, waikiki aquarium, ala moana shopping center, etc. also, if you guys are staying in waikiki, i would recommend trying Rainbow drive-inn Rainbow Drive-In | Hawaiian Plate Lunches | Honolulu, Hawaii . those are two other local favorites. if you folks decide to hit up the north shore, definitely check out Matsumoto Matsumoto Shave Ice Shave Ice located in Haleiwa. if you guys like mexican food, there's a local favorite called Cholo's homestyle mexican Aloha and Welcome To Cholos Homestyle Mexican Restaurant & Margarita Bar******** . ohhh and i can't forget about Liliha Bakery and their coco puffs. http://lilihabakeryhawaii.com/baked_goods

I had to stay in Oahu work related for 2 months.
The coolest thing you can do is visit Huanama bay. I don't know if I spelled it correctly.
It's a world famous coral reef and exotic fish snorkeling bay.
It's the most amazing hing I've seen in Hawaii.

Also, I'm assuming your staying in Waikiki, there is a lil market there where locals sell all kinds of souvenirs. There is also a MUCH bigger flea market next to pearl harbor. It's much cheaper there too.

I would also recommend you to try their local fish dish: mahi. At the right place it's daily catch, and tastes really good.

It's also cool to rent scooters and explore all of Waikiki that way.

Have fun, talkto locals, they can point you to the good restaurants and so forth :)

ohhh yes!! how could i forget about Hanauma Bay! yes, it is an amazing sight to see and snorkel with the aquatic life there. they're closed on tuesdays and the parking lot fills up fast so i would recommend getting there early.

i think the market in waikiki you're referring to is the international market place. good place to get little nick-nacks and the like. the flea market you're referring to is the Aloha Stadium swap meet. as mentioned, it is quite a bit cheaper than waikiki prices.
Also don't jay walk In Waikiki, some dumb cop tried giving me a ticket! Lol thats a little harsh when it's a tourist area!
damn, that sucks. plenty of cops patrolling waikiki so gotta obey the laws LOL!! also, don't try and run across the crosswalk if you don't have the signal cus drivers here will go without hesitating:eek:hsnap:

Haha thanks for the tips. Been here two days in waikiki and its nice! Definitely going hiking all around the mountains. Planning on camping out one night too. I'm gonna hit up the stadium flee market and going snorkling tomorrow. Got a plug on the island who use to.be a tour guide. Wish I could meet the other tsxs from Hawaii. That'd be sick! If you plan a meet around wailiki ill make it. Didn't know if yoy guys were from the main island or oahu. I'm here until next weds.

Muhalo!
