This weekend New York Times travel writer Matt Gross shared his experiences in Hawaii on a Dime. My boyfriend and I are planning a Valentine’s Day trip to Hawaii, so he eagerly forwarded me the article (there’s also a slide show and a video to accompany the article online). Gross visited the Big Island and Kauai, but we’ll be traveling to Oahu and the Big Island instead.
Still, the writer offers some helpful tips, like booking rooms at a bed and breakfast and foregoing the expensive local coffee (unless you’re a serious coffee connoisseur). So far, the boyfriend and I managed to snag airline tickets from Boston to Honolulu for about $500 on Delta Airlines, and we’re spending about $100/night at locally owned B & B’s, as Gross suggests. Stay tuned for more on my budget adventures in Hawaii!
