There are so many exciting things to do on Oahu that you are sure to find activities that everyone in your family will enjoy. Be sure to make plenty of time to sleep in and enjoy your vacation, but also schedule in some excursions and activities. Here are some of the top things to do on Oahu.
Eat The Street
Every Friday night in Kakaʻako Park there is a Sunset Bazaar featuring local food vendors, retailers, live music, arts, crafts and more! If you are on Oahu on the last Friday of the month, head to the monthly ‘Eat The Street’ festival to enjoy some of the best food trucks on the Island.
