Celebrate the Holidays Hawaii Style
Whether it’s twinkling lights strung among the palm trees or special local pop-ups that add to the island’s festive atmosphere, the holidays in Hawaii just seem to be extra special. And one of the many great things about holidays in Hawaii is that you can count on warm weather all year round, so a beachfront celebration is a distinct possibility. Whether you’re whisking a loved one off on a surprise getaway for Valentine’s Day or you plan to hide the Easter eggs for the kids among Hawaii’s vibrant tropical flowers, any holiday is a great one for spending it on the island!
It often comes as a surprise to visitors that where on the island you base your stay can make a dramatic impact on the type of weather you’ll experience. While the east sides of the islands tend to get the most rain, the leeward, or west sides tend to be dry and sunny. Due to its location on the dryer west side of the Big Island, Kona makes an excellent home base for your island vacation. From Kona, you can expect plenty of blue-sky days perfect for golfing, hitting the beach, and exploring the rugged terrain that makes this destination so exotic.

Kona’s Old Airport Beach Park is another local place to enjoy a good old fashioned Independence Day fireworks show. To experience the paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) lifestyle, consider heading to the interior area of Waimea. This area full of rolling green pastures may not be the first thing you imagine when envisioning a Hawaii vacation, but its sprawling ranches and deep historic roots make it a special place to visit. The 4thof July rodeo at Parker Ranch is a great place to catch paniolo skills in action!
