    Yep yep, I should be attending a conference in Hawaii (not a fun conference like Botcon) in May so what are cool things to do there? I believe I'll be in Honolulu.

    You MUST go to Pearl Harbor and see the USS Arizona memorial.

    Like StarsabreJ said, definitely hit up the USS Arizona. You may have read about Pearl Harbor in school, but once you visit the memorial, its feels very real. I stayed at Waikiki Beach about 3 weeks ago and it was awesome. There was this bar there called the Red Lion and they had happy hour from noon to 8pm daily! Cheap ass beer and drinks. Take an island tour to get a quick look at the island. We visited the Dole pineapple plantation and a couple of other scenic spots. I think the best thing was the beach at Waikiki and the bar. If you do step into the ocean, watch out for the reef. I cut my foot up but man, it was worth it.

    Go snorkeling. I forget the name, but there is a bay within driving distance of Honolulu that is great. Also, if you have time, drive up to the North Shore and see the waves. Be careful of the locals though. I've heard they aren't too nice up there.

    Also be prepared for lots and lots of Japanese tourists. They are everywhere.

    Find a drunk 'Lost' cast member, and offer to give them a ride home. Kidnap them, and hold them ransom for some damn answers.

    Instead of telling you about it, could I hide in some of your luggage and go? I've always wanted to go to Hawaii. ONE OF THESE DAYS...

    The wifey and I took our honeymoon on the island of Maui, which is picturesque and beautiful. If you have any sort of opportunity to drop in on Maui and drive around the island, it's gorgeous. It made me think "This is what a Hawaiian vacation should be."

    Don't forget to visit the leper colony at Kalaupapa!

    Also, stay away from small commercial vessels advertising three-hour tours. Three-hour tours.

    It's badass and you won't want to leave.

    That's all you need to know.

    Big Island = Check out the active volcano.

    Maui = Haleakala during sunrise....awesome, but make sure you head back down ASAP or you'll be stuck behind bicyclers. Hana, pretty but the ride there might be too much for some (lots of twist and turns). Lahaina. They got a nude beach there too.

    Oahu = Pearl Harbor, Aloha Flea Market at the Aloha Stadium (Wed, Sat, Sun), USS Missouri, ride around the island (takes about 3/4 a day or less), Polynesian Cultural Center to learn about the islands, Haunauma Bay to snorkle with the sealife. North Shore to see all the wicked surfs (and where they do the Masters of Surfing <- dunno what they call it).
