Editor’s Note

Waikiki Magazine - - WELCOME -

Peo­ple of­ten note that it seems that there aren’t any sea­sons here in Hawai‘i. Don’t be fooled by the tem­per­ate weather and seem­ingly end­less sunny days, we do have sea­sons, and the one in which our is­land shores shines bright­est is—you guessed it— sum­mer!

Sum­mer means ev­ery day is shave ice day (grab some at Le­mona, turn to page 39 to read more), South Shore swells per­fect for surf­ing ( page 30) and show­ing off your bikini bod ( page 16). If you plan on some wa­ter play, turn to pages 12 and 14 for some ideas on gear and ap­parel to bring along.

Sun-filled days are tai­lor-made for ex­plo­ration. Check out nearby Kaimuki ( page 36) for some food and shop­ping ad­ven­tures and learn about Hawai‘i’s mil­i­tary history at the U.S. Army Mu­seum of Hawaii ( page 38). History buffs—and those just cu­ri­ous about the Waikiki Nata­to­rium’s im­pres­sive façade at Queen’s Beach—can read all about it on page 26.

Feel­ing ro­man­tic? Why not get mar­ried? We tell you how on page 32. Maybe you just want a great date night. Turn to page 21 for some great finds for a night out on the town. For the ac­tual date, check out Lew­ers Lounge’s jazz duo ( page 34). For din­ner, in­dulge in the deca­dent Ja­panese buf­fet at Hakone ( page 42) or try one of the restau­rants in our ap­pe­tizer story, “Mega Bites” ( page 40).

So which­ever way you choose to take ad­van­tage of this most fun of sea­sons, be sure to bring Waikiki mag­a­zine along! Here are a few things we’re ex­cited about…
