Hawaii Vacation News Roundup for January 28th

  • I love this article on why Hawaii is the best place in the world for stargazing. I’ve been amazed at the number of stars and shooting stars that I’ve at the top of Haleakala just before dawn.  You don’t have to get up to the top of Haleakala or Mauna Kea to appreciate the clear view of the night sky.  Just try to get to a place without nearby “light pollution”.  It’s a real treat!
  • Go! Airlines is having another inter-island fare sale.  This one is a leap year sale for $29 one way.  You must book your tickets by midnight January 30th for travel from tomorrow through February 29th.
  • If you’re a frugal traveler, you may find some good money saving ideas in this article, Hawaii on a Dime,  in the NY Times.  I thought I was frugal, well, not in comparison to this chap who visited the Big Island and Kauai.  He really saved significantly on his accommodations.
  • A Hawaii State Senator is proposing a plan for the state to buy the Coco Palms Resort and convert it into a public park, per the Kauai Garden Island New.  I like the concept, but it comes with a $10 million price tag.  Oh, please, someone bring back life into this storied resort.
  • I participated in a blog carnival of travel at TravelHacker.  You can check out diverse travel articles here
