What Should I Do In Hawaii?

I'm off for Honolulu this morning, heading to the Association for Asian Studies conference where I will be presenting my research on political participation and the Internet to a multidisciplinary audience from around the world.

As I head to Hawaii, are there any experts out there on our fiftieth state? What are some of the can't miss activities that I should consider in between my professional engagements?

This site lists some items of interest, such as the state capitol, the Cathedral of Our Lady of Peace (where Fr. Damian, now a Saint, was ordained), and Pearl Harbor.

I see that cathedral on the map, so it should be good for Mass this weekend!

Kawai is an island of contrasts. You can't drive around it due to "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific" cutting right through the middle of it. Mount Waialeale is one of the wettest spots on earth, averaging over 400 inches of rain a yet. As such, there are no permanent trails to the summit. The beaches are a little less populated than that of Oahu and the big island. If you go, you can skip the fern grotto tour - back then it was strictly from commercial. (Ok, which artist did I steal that line from?)
