New York City and Hawaii
Last weekend I went to New York City for a wedding shower and bachelorette party. I know what you are thinking – this is a blog about Hawaii Activities – what does New York City have to do with Hawaii Activities? Keep reading because they have more in common than just being some of the world’s greatest islands!
On June 4, 2012 Hawaiian Air had its inaugural flight from Honolulu to JFK Airport in New York. Whether you are a New Yorker looking for a Hawaii Vacation or a Kama’aina heading to New York City you can now fly direct from Honolulu to New York City.
I was excited when I saw this advertisement for Hawaiian Air when I was walking around New York’s Upper East Side.
Hawaiian Air offers a variety of flights from the mainland, Australia and Asia but Hawaiian Air is also a great airline for Interisland Flights. Hawaii Discount offers a variety of interisland flights that include day tours or you can choose our interisland flight/ Hawaii Rental Car package and spend the day exploring the island on your own.
The weekend in New York City was to celebrate the upcoming wedding of a great friend of mine. Her wedding is in September and they have not chosen a destination for their honeymoon yet. Of course I am recommending they have a Hawaiian Honeymoon! Hawaii is consistently ranked as one of the top Honeymoon destinations. Hawaii Discount can even help with Hawaii Wedding Packages as well as the best Hawaii Activities for your Hawaiian Honeymoon!
If there is one thing New York City and Hawaii have in common it is delicious food. We wanted seafood and obviously Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck was out of the question so we went to CraftBar for delicious Prince Edward Island Mussels.
Heather, from the Hawaii Discount Traveling Trio series, and I took the bride to be out for a few drinks. We were not drinking Mai Tais in New York but many of the fresh and fruity drinks reminded us of our favorite cocktails from Duke’s and Rum Fire.
We ended our girls weekend at Bar Coastal on the Upper East Side. The beach theme and numerous surfboards lining the ceiling made us feel like we were closer to Hawaii. As Heather and I sipped our drinks we checked out the surfboards and remembered our first surf lesson on Oahu.
So if you are in the NYC area and looking for a direct flight to Honolulu for a Hawaii Vacation check out Hawaiian Air. If you are in Hawaii and have never been to the Big Apple jump on a nonstop flight to NYC!
Which island do you think the bride should choose for a Hawaiian honeymoon?
