Hawaii is a melting pot of cultures, and nowhere is this more apparent than in its cuisines. From luau and "plate lunches" to sushi and teriyaki steak, there's no shortage of interesting flavors and presentations. Restaurant atmosphere varies, too, from casual local spots to elegantly decorated resort restaurants.

Whether you're looking for a quick snack or a multicourse meal, we can help you find the best eating experiences the island has to offer. Jump in and enjoy!

Choosing lodging is a tough decision, but fret not—our expert writers and editors have done most of the legwork.

To help narrow your choices, consider what type of property you'd like to stay at (big resort, quiet bed-and-breakfast, or condo rental) and what type of island climate you're looking for (beachfront strand or remote rain forest). We give you all the details you need to book a place that suits your style.

Reserve your room well in advance, and ask about discounts and packages. Hotel websites often have Internet-only deals.
