5 free fun activities to do in Hawaii

When purchasing Hawaii holiday packages, it’s always a good idea to do some advance exploration on what different kinds of free activities are available at your travel destination.

 

One of the first things that come to mind when thinking about Hawaii are the hula dancers, so we looked around a bit to see if we could locate some free performances. We found one that takes place at the DFS Gallerina at 330 Royal Hawaiian Ave, Honolulu, HI. Shows are every night beginning at 7 P.M.

 

In Maui, you can visit the Hawaii State Art Museum. This state funded art museum is one of the few of its kind in the entire country and features work from Hawaii’s finest artists. The museum is also open for First Friday with traditional musicians playing the ki ho alu, or Hawaiian guitar.

 

For nature and animal lovers, you can see the giant sea turtles at Kahalu’u Beach Park. This is also a quiet area and is fairly secluded, making it a good place which to take a break from the fast pace that is sometimes involved in traveling and sightseeing.

 

The Hilo Zoo is also totally without cost and is one of the few zoos in the world that is able to boast this. At the Hilo Zoo, you will see indigenous animals as well as native examples of Hawaii’s fascinating plant life. The petting zoo is open from 1:30 until 2:30 P.M. every Saturday, and if you are there at 3:30 P.M. on any day, you can watch them feed the Bengal tiger.

 

A little over 2.5 miles southwest of Pahoa, Hawaii, you can see the famous “lava trees” of Hawaii. These were formed when lava flowed into a wooded area and made molds of the tree trunks. This is located on Pahoa-Pohoiki Road and is open during the daylight hours.

 

So, those of you who are interested in Hawaii holiday packages should keep in mind that not everything on the islands is going to be prohibitively expensive. With advance planning you’ll have fun as well as save money.
