Budget Travel Redefined
I put a fresh spin on budget travel, showing you not only how to spend less in Hawaii, but how to see it in a more authentic way, without sacrificing comfort for savings.
Cozy, restful accommodations: Instead of spending $300 a night for a chain hotel, bed down in a Victorian mansion for $65 a night at Maureen's B&B on the Big Island (p. 351) or stay in a beachfront condo on Maui for $98 a night (p. 245).
Food finds: I'll take you to the best of the island's authentic Hawaiian restaurants and food stands and the places where up-and-coming chefs are making names for themselves.
Sights and attractions: Get in-depth coverage of Hawaii's iconic sights and the gems most visitors miss, plus the best in snorkeling, hiking, beachcombing, surfing, and more.
Insider's Hawaii: Drop in on slack-key guitar jam sessions on Oahu (p. 155) or volunteer for the Hawaii Wildlife Fund on Maui to help endangered sea turtles (p. 294).
