Thanksgiving should be spent with family, so bring your family with you to Hawaii for Thanksgiving. Our aloha spirit welcomes you any time of year, especially at the holidays. You'll find all the usual attractions to bring you to Oahu, of course starting with Waikiki Beach, which is just 300 steps from the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber. Take a few more steps and you can reach these other great Thanksgiving events.
Thanksgiving Dinner Hawaiian Style
Head to Rock-a-Hula for a Thanksgiving dinner with a luau buffet and a special dessert for the holiday. The show features Hawaiian entertainment including fire and knife dancers, plus "celebrity" performers like Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson. It's a festive Thanksgiving night you'll be sure to remember. If you're looking for a more traditional Thanksgiving dinner, check out your options at OpenTable.
Work Up an Appetite Before the Big Meal
You can enjoy your stay in the islands, give back to others, and work up an appetite for your holiday dinner by joining in the Homeward Bound 5K Run. The great event is held the morning of Thanksgiving Day and raises funds for the Institute for Human Services.
Burn Off the Calories After Your Holiday Dinner
If the big Thanksgiving meal leaves you feeling lazy, Waikiki Beach is just a few steps away, with plenty of sand for you to spread out your blanket and enjoy the sun. Or take a more active approach and get into the water for a surfing lesson that'll help burn away the turkey calories.
Stay in a Waikiki Beach Hotel Near the Holiday Action
However you decide to spend your Hawaiian Thanksgiving, the Holiday Inn Waikiki Beachcomber is a perfectly situated Waikiki Beach hotel that puts you close to the beach, the shopping, and the special events that you want to enjoy during your Waikiki beach vacation.
