Last time I was in Hawaii it was only a quick trip and I spent all my time on Honolulu. Touristy or not I had a great time. I want to go back with my wife and I'd like to venture out to another island, maybe something quieter (naturey?) and a bit less like the main strip of Waikiki. Thanks!
Yes, I agree with Denise....but any island is quieter than Oahu! The Big Island is also a great choice as it has so many natural wonders. Take a look at things to do on each of these islands to make your final choice. Kauai is small enough that you can pick one location and see the entire island in a relaxed manner. If you spend two weeks on the Big Island, I'd suggest one week on the eastern coast and one week on the western coast as travel times between the two are quite long. about 10 years ago
