Hawaii: Polynesian Cultural Center in Oahu

We finally visited this place on the 3rd “full-day” (Wednesday, October 21st 2015) after staying at a hotel just behind it. It was late morning and it just opened about an hour or so earlier, so there weren’t that many people yet.

As we entered, we stopped at this store that had many cool “stuff”, like this car inside …

I then checked what was outside nearby the store and saw this gazebo, which there was some guy singing..

I wasn’t able to get a video of it, but I would share one later in the evening when some of came back for supper.

After visiting the store, we walked around together..

There was this bill board like sign that had information of what Polynesia is made up of..

We also visited the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame

After over an hour or so visit, we were ready to head out to go surfing at a nearby beach. However, we planned on coming back. My brother and his family wanted to go to the southern part of the island to go shopping. They needed to get my niece a new suitcase as it ripped on the way to Hawaii. My nephew wanted to stay and play games, so he stayed with my parents and I in the hotel room. We later went back to the cultural center to have supper. It was close by to walk, which is why we decided to go there…

When we to out to eat the restaurant at the center, we chose to sat outside to watch the entertainment held at the gazebo ..

It was a great environment and I personally had to comment on the great food too..

I seldom or rarely eat red meat and even avoid hamburgers since it’s hard to digest for me. However, when I roaming grass fed beef, I had to try it..

It was probably the most expensive burger I got, but the best tasting one too! It was worth the price. I saw this as paying partly for the great entertainment too!

I apologize for the quality of the video as I lost my digital camera earlier, so I pretty much recorded and took pics from my Samsung Galaxy smartphone..
