Off Roading on the Big Island

Many folks to travel to the Big Island want to rent a 4 Wheel Drive jeep or SUV to go off roading. The problem is that the major rental car companies don’t allow it. Today we answer question from one of our a podcast listner who asks if we know of a company that might rent off roading vehicles. We recommend a company called Aiona Car Rental in Hilo they are flexible and allow their cars to go off roading!

Must dos On Oahu

Today we were asked by one of our Facebook friends Jason Johnson where we would recommend to take a first time visitor if they only had one place to see and eat on a walk. Well, it’s very difficult to narrow down just one place but I recommend they enjoy the east side for the day. You can go to Hanauma Bay, Eternity beach, China walls, Sandy beach, and the MakaPuu tide-pools. The East side is a great way to spend the day and on my must do list. My favorite restaurants I always recommend Town restaurant in Kaimuki and also I’m telling folks about two new favorites of mine Pint & Jigger on King Street and The Whole in downtown Kakkako.


  1. I myself would recommend for first timers and beach lovers the Waikiki skyline which is now dotted with an abundance of both high-rises and resort hotels. The beach is actually fairly short, with half of it marked off for surfers. Aloha!
