Patricia Skeriotis Presents : Vacation! – Part 13 (Honolulu)

Honolulu, Oahu!

Oahu is one of the largest of the Hawaiian islands and is often called “the Gathering Place.” Oahu is home to the capital of Hawaii : Honolulu.

This tropical paradise has inspired things to do both on and off the beaten path.

The city offers all that modern society has to offer, with high end restaurants and up to the minute styles. You can get all of your shopping done at a laid back, island-time pace and enjoy the gorgeous weather while you’re at it.

The weather stays between 70 and 80 degrees all year round. The natural splendor of wild flowers and lush greenery greet you even in the dead of the continental winter.
