PACIFIC PARADISE: YOUR VISIT TO HONOLULU
Honolulu makes for a great beach holiday. I recently spent five days there and enjoyed the beaches, culture and tropical vegetation. It was just a four-hour plus flight from Oakland and I snagged a great fare on Southwest. I stayed at the fun Surfjack Hotel and Swim Club which has a lobby with a pool in the center, free sunscreen, and a live music (and other events every night).
