Think About It: Your Backyard Escape

Looking for something different to do this coming weekend? Economy got you thinking twice about a trip to the mainland or even to a Neighbor Island? Well, you could spend some time on the North Shore, after walking through Haleiwa town. You could spend a night checking things out in Waikiki. And you folks in Wailuku and Kahului, when was the last time you took a weekend day trip to Napili? Or how about Waimea people heading up to Hanalei?

You catch my drift. If we just re-adjust our thinking and plan a bit, there are plenty of interesting places to visit that we simply don't get to or don't think about. I remember getting a ride to the windward side from a co-worker a number of years back. I had to help her with directions, as this Honolulu stalwart said she had not been to Kailua in 20-years! A whole generation had been born since she last drove over the Pali Highway.

If you haven't been to some of these places in your own backyard, you might not know what you're missing. And if you are looking for an adventure right here at home, the price is right, there are plenty of places to check out. It took me 30-years before I spent any time in the Kalaeloa area; shame on me. Sometimes it's great to go to somewhere different, explore new things, and tool around every once in a while for fun, diversity, and adventure, so maybe this is the week or month you decide to do just that, and do it right here at home. Think about it…
