Thanksgiving In Hawaii 2017
Tradition With A Twist

Thanksgiving in Hawaii is perfect with tranquil blue waters, sunsets and gentle ocean breezes. Local flavors & the cultural melting pot is incorporated into many menus. There's no better way to celebrate being with family and counting your blessings than on a vacation in Hawaii.

I also think it is the perfect time to visit in terms of savings. Hotels are at a discount during this slow time before Christmas and the beaches, streets and activities are far less crowded.

There's little to no lines, the tradewinds return for cool breezes and the overall vibe is more mellow. Read on to learn about different Thanksgiving Dinner options in 2016...
