If you are getting ready to take a Hawaii vacation, you are probably feeling somewhat overwhelmed by the tremendous wealth of (often conflicting) advice found in tour books and at travel agencies. The fact is, even advice offered by so-called "experts" is necessarily limited by the finite amount of time they have spent in Hawaii and how long it has been since they last visited. There is only one group that you can trust time and time again to get it right: people who live there.

Fortunately, in the last few years, a few generous groups of native Hawaiians have made it their business to help tourists get a full, up-to-date picture of the best things to do and see on the islands. More fortunate still, they have made the better part of their research and advice available online--for absolutely nothing. That means that you can reap the benefits of local experts, even when you are still hundreds or thousands of miles away.
