First time to Hawaii ~ Oct 2014

Jump to last reply

Starting to plan my first trip to Hawaii for mid October 2014.

There will be 6 people on this trip. My parents, my brother and I as well as my aunt and uncle.The four of us are traveling from Detroit to San Diego to meet up with my aunt and uncle who live there and then we are all going to fly down to Hawaii together.
I'm not quite sure how many days the trip will be yet. I believe it will be 2 weeks total with about 10 days in Hawaii.

As most of the threads I have read stated it makes sense to spend time in Oahu since that is where we will be flying into and out of but needed some help with the itinerary.

I'm an open book in terms of suggestions on things to do. I know that we definitely want to go to the beach and do some souvenir shopping other than that I'm not sure.

My mom is not the most active person and walking long distances at a time is not ideal so hiking is probably out.

Which Islands are the best to go to for:

Hawaiian luau shows
beach
fishing
scenery - mountain views and look out points
Zip lining tours

Basically looking for suggestions on things that we need to see while we are there. Another island to visit besides Oahu. Finally, I'm just finishing up grad school and have saved up some money and will have more before we go but places that you think we should see but are affordable.

Thank you in advance!!
