Mauii or Oahu- last minute trip!

Jump to last reply

We weren't planning on going anywhere this summer. However, my husband and I are burnt out and decided we'd go to Hawaii next week. This is the first time I've just had a week to get myself informed! So, we need your help!

We want to go for 7 days (not counting travel) but may be forced to do only 5 (depends on work). Is that enough time? We only want to do one island. We're traveling with 3 teens. I'm not sure which though-- Oahu or Mauii?

1- We like the beach, but hubby and I don't swim (we relax). Kids do and they like snorkeling.

2- We love nature, hiking and just driving around. We were thinking to rent a car (since it's America, it'll be relatively easy to drive, right?!).

3- We enjoy history-- so if there's anything to visit that would be nice to see.

4- We want something relaxing most of the time, maybe physically challenging one day but definitely something to get back our energy.

5- Don't care at all for the "nightlife", don't care about shopping or souvenirs (my pictures are our souvenirs) and we don't care about "fine dining".

6- We do care about medium to budget hotels.

So-- which Island would be best for us? And, where should we stay on the island? I've read about Wakiki and North Shore but I'm so confused. Help me please :-)
