@sa girl: quite the contrary to one’s belief. While Kauai is small and less people, there is a lot to do there. If you are adventureous you will find quite a bit of activites to do and be relaxed while doung it IMO. I spent 6 days there and did something every day, even relaxed by the pool at least 2 days out of the 6 and it was wonderful 😉
@mskoloa: yikes, Now that is something to think about (Expense). I can see how some main-landers would get island fever, especially if you came from a big city.

Thanks for all the advice! We are researching flights and hotels to and in both Oahu and Kauai to see if prices are comparable. We will be going to one or the other for 3 nights before we head to Maui. One minute I lean toward Kauai, because generally I am drawn towards more of the outdoorsy, relaxing honeymoon, but then I think that Oahu is a better option because if I’m going all the way to Hawaii, I should definitely check out historical and famous places like Pearl Harbor and Diamondhead. Good options/problem to have 🙂

@SpartyOn: Just a heads up about Pearl Harbor: If you want to go on the free tour of the USS Arizona memorial, then go early. They give out tickets with a time on them. We got to Pearl Harbor at 10am, and the earliest we could get into the memorial was 12:15, and then it’s a 75 minute tour. We ended up leaving because we had rented a car and didn’t want to give up that much of our day.
