Explore. Experience. Engage.


Though there are bargains to be found, Hawaii is not known as a budget destination. It's popular with tourists all year round, and hotel rates tend to be correspondingly high (though they've fallen a bit during the economic downturn). In Honolulu, Waikiki is the hot place to stay, with many splashy properties located right on Waikiki Beach. Budget travelers who are willing to walk a couple of blocks can save a few pennies by choosing a hotel near -- but not on -- the beach.
