As far as Hawaii goes, I’ve only been to Maui, but I loved it. The road to Hana is lovely, as is the Four Seasons, on the other side of the island. And the Maui Aquatic Center (aquarium) is really cute. A lot of people I know who have been to several of the islands especially love Maui, I feel like it has lots to see and do, but isn’t too much, like Oahu which has Honolulu or the big island might be. But if you want nature, rest, and relaxation, Kauai might be a better fit.

I don’t know very much about Seattle, but I live in LA. Wandering around Hollywood, Venice Beach, or Santa Monica is always fun. There are so many amazing hotels.

vgnfarmer:  Yes, Kauai is less-developed than say, Oahu.  We just got back from Maui and did ton of one-with-nature things: snorkeling, hiking in the national park, surfing, etc.  On Maui, they have planned for all of the high rise resorts to be in one area (Ka’anapali), which is nice.  I think you can’t go wrong with either Kauai or Maui.

I vote the Big Island (my fave) or Maui. I live on Oahu and its very boring with lots of people and traffic. But the Big Island is great!

vgnfarmer:  We went to Kauai for our honeymoon and had good friends go to Maui for theirs at about the same time. We both loved it. Our friends were there for 2 weeks and stayed at a couple different B&Bs and then at a resort for the last 5 days, so they traveled around a lot and loved doing that. I wanted to do more beach relaxing time so we had a condo in Kauai for 2 weeks and did lots of day hikes, snorkeling, ziplining, sunset cruises, etc. and had a ball. Kauai is smaller so you can travel the whole island in a day. Kauai is GORGEOUS and we loved it, would definitely recommend it, but it doesn’t sound like you can go wrong with Maui either. Also, there were lots of amazing golf courses on Kauai, not just at resorts necessarily. I would recommend purchasing The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook and The Ultimate Maui Guidebook, they are the ones with a blue cover. Awesome resources and may enlighten you to which you’d prefer by giving you ideas of what to do at each.
