We’ve been telling you our favorite spots, but now it's your turn to play tour guide. Where should Lindsay-Jean go during her trip to Maui and Oahu?

Our Contributing Editor Lindsay-Jean is headed to Maui and Oahu for vacation—a belated 10th-anniversary​ celebration—next week with her husband. One sun-loving vegetarian and one sun-avoiding red-headed omnivore are depending on your suggestions for how to make the most of their first trip to Hawaii. Is a luau a must-see event or an overrated tourist trap? Is the Road to Hana a trip to paradise or a scary, time-wasting drive?

Where should they go, eat, shop, sit, drink? Things of particular interest:

  • Hard-to-find, hidden, locals spots (yes, I know, every tourist asks for these—there are still some secret ones left though, right? I promise not to tell!)
  • Whale watching
  • Dive bars with killer views and posh bars with killer drinks
  • Breweries
  • Farmers markets and local produce
  • Old stuff and thrift stores
  • Running routes and scenic hikes
  • Restaurants to capitalize on their temporarily child-free state
  • Local specialties not to be missed
