There are two types of vacations in this great blue world: There are the forgettable, ho-hum getaways, bland, dim, and void of color. A nasty sunburn the only thing you have to show for your travels. Nothing learned, nothing new experienced.
And then, there are adventures.
We’re talking about the type of vacations that you’ll be replaying in your mind every night before you go to bed for years to come. We’re talking about making memories, stepping outside of your comfort zone, and experiencing all of the wonderful things that the world has to offer. That’s the kind of trip we can get behind and that’s the kind of getaway you deserve.
To make your next vacation a true adventure, we’ve gone ahead and crafted up our list of five things you have to experience this winter in Oahu's Turtle Bay.
You can’t go wrong with a juicy beef patty, melted cheddar and mayonnaise dripping down your fingers kind of cheeseburger. America’s favorite meal is so sinfully satisfying we aren't surprised it has its own national holiday: National Cheeseburger Day celebrated September 18th!
Where did this mouthwatering concoction come from? Lionel Sternberger is reputed to have introduced the cheeseburger in 1926 at the age of 16. He was working as a fry cook at his father's Pasadena, California sandwich shop, "The Rite Spot," and "experimentally dropped a slab of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger." We’re all glad he did!
In honor of National Cheeseburger Day, we are celebrating our three favorite North Shore, Oahu burgers that call Turtle Bay home.
Coming to Hawaii and getting lei’d (the act of putting a flower lei over someone’s neck) come hand and hand. It’s the traditional way locals greet you to our tropical paradise. It’s aloha in action.
Well, if you need some aloha wherever you are, you may want to try making our Lei’d Back Lychee cocktail at home. If you are staying with us on Oahu’s laid back North Shore, stop by The Point Sunset & Pool Bar and one of our amazing bartenders will serve one up for ya.
1 ½ oz. Ocean Organic Vodka
1 oz. Soho Lychee
