Staying in Lahaina in June - what are your recommendations?

We'll be there in early June, with access to a car, for about a week. Accommodations are sorted, but we'll be free for most of the days. This thread had lots of great recommendations, but I don't want to miss anything. Two adults in average shape, neither of us are SCUBA certified, but we might like snorkeling. Looking online has my head spinning.

Car rental in Maui?

I've just booked a trip for three to Maui. We're staying near the Kaanapali Beach, but would like to explore the forests and volcanoes and all the groovy nature stuff. Should I rent a small car to get around, or is there fairly reliable public transport? Renting a car isn't that expensive, but hotel does have parking fees, and I'm not sure how hard it is to find parking around the island.

The Big Island (Hawaii) for 4 days, help me plan a great trip!

I (36-year-old female) am traveling from Boston to Hawaii in early March for 10 days. Planning on 4 days and 4 nights on my own on the Big Island, sandwiched between three days on Oahu and three on Kauai where I will have company. For logistical reasons, I’m in some hurry to book my flights to/from TBI, and so am trying to nail down my itinerary. I’m also inflexible on days of the week on TBI. I’m thinking of one of these two itineraries: [more inside]

We are thrilled. It all happened fast and we need your help planning a dream honeymoon/babymoon to Hawaii. Our timing is mid-March 2016! [more inside]

Hawaii Hotels with Zero Entry Pools

We are looking to stay in Kauai (or possibly another Hawaiian island) for a week in the spring and am having the hardest time finding a place to stay that has a zero-entry pool, a separate sleeping area, a/c, and is priced under $300/night. Are these criteria unreasonable or is there hope? [more inside]

Nice dinner with vegetables on Oahu

I'm on vacation with my husband and his family on Oahu, and I swear I've eaten more animal protein this week than I usually eat in a month. Where can my husband and I go for a nice, sit-down meal tonight that will hopefully include lots of vegetables? We're staying in Kailua, so preferably somewhere nearby, and I don't want to spend more than about $25 per entree. Thanks!

My partner and I just won a free trip to Oahu. What should we see or do?

No, it's not a time-share scam. Yes, it's legitimate. I've been to Hawaii once as pre-teen and my partner has never been. Assume for the sake of this question that you have 4-5 days in Hawaii and want to see/do all the best things. What would you recommend?

Post-hurricane Hawaii vacation?

I'm headed to Maui, Maalaea Bay to be precise, next week on Wednesday, and am a little freaked out about this Hurricane situation. I'm looking for recommendations on solid news sources beyond just the weather updates for Maui. Will the grocery stores be re-stocked by Wednesday? Having never been in the vicinity of a hurricane before, are there any post-storm things I should be expecting or is it likely to just be a regular beach vacation?

Looking for (not so) big adventures on Kauai

My girlfriend and I are going to Kauai for vacation in May, we're spending the first two days South of Lihue on our own, and then meeting up with a big bunch of family in Princeville for a whole week. As two late twenties, gay, slightly geeky, not super hardcore outdoorsy types, what should we absolutely not miss during our trip? [more inside]
