Oahu

If all-night dancing isn’t for you, Oahu also has a thriving arts and culture scene, with community-theater productions, stand-up comedy, outdoor concerts, film festivals, and chamber-music performances. Major Broadway shows, dance companies, rock stars, and comedians come through the Islands, too. Check local newspapers—the Honolulu Star-Advertiser or Midweek—for the latest events. Websites like www.frolichawaii.com and www.honolulumagazine.com also have great information.
