Unlike the mainland, Hawaii is full of local shaved ice spots. While shaved ice can be enjoyed all year round, there’s nothing quite like immersing yourself in your favorite flavors on a hot summer day.

Some activities in Hawaii are best done during the summer. Occasionally, after a major storm hits during the fall and winter months, tours will be postponed or cancelled.

For example, if it’s raining heavily, chances are you won’t be able to zipline, take a sunset cruise, or even go to a water park.

Although Hawaii does not observe daylight saving time, it gets dark earlier in the fall and winter, which means you can’t enjoy late-night picnics on the beach in endless sunshine. .
