    Or don't spend your time on Waikiki or a resort and avoid 95% of those who are portrayed in that article.

    True. Maybe the only 'unavoidables' are the soon-to-be newlyweds/honeymooners.

    Actually I haven't even seen too many of them. I expect they spend a lot of time inside their hotel/vacation rental room. :p

    Funny you say that. A couple of years ago, I burned points at the JW Marriott Ihilani Ko Olina Resort & Spa. They had a place nearby, sharing the same beach, that did weddings. Only weddings. Day after day of weddings. Ugh. Add to that, the next door neighbor resort was a Disney property. Kids galore. Double ugh. So, I suppose no matter where you go, you can see anything.

    I always stay at vacation rentals in Hawaii, except for last time when I spent part of my trip at my friends' house on Kauai. So, I still meet lots of tourists, but mostly the ones who enjoy Hawaii's beauty and who get out and explore.

    Kauai is my favorite island and haven't been there in 3 or 4 years. I have friends that live in Waikiki so I stayed there one vaca and Ko Olina one vaca. Never again. I do not like Oahu as a whole and will either explore the other islands or just stick with Kauai from now on.

    Hawaii is beautiful, but if I could only afford Waikiki, I would not go back. I loved the big island - away from the resorts. And that list applies to all high tourist areas.

    I've spent 3-4 months in Hawaii between all of my trips. I've never set foot on Waikiki, and have spent only three nights on Oahu. Yet, I feel that outside of Kauai where I have spent most of my time, I hardly know Hawaii at all. There is so much there to see, experience and appreciate.
