Date ideas in Honolulu
Dance the forbidden dance
Paradise Tango offers a one-of-a-kind experience for visitors. A variety of tango classes and drop-in nights for couples are available. Our favorite is the “wine and tango” where lovers can sip on the sweet nectar, eat pupus (Hawaiian appetizers), socialize, and take a 30-minute tango lesson.
Fun fact: The instructors, Brett & Jenny Griswold, currently hold the world record for the longest dance marathon by a couple! The Griswolds did the Argentine tango for 38 hours and 30 minutes, so you will be in good hands under their instruction.
Discover the mysteries of Hawaii
Take a haunted, historical tour with Mysteries of Hawaii. The popular ghost tours and experiences are vast. Start with a walking tour of the Haunted Fort Street Mall where the sacrificial temple is said to be haunted by its victims. Another walking tour of the Waikiki Sacred Islands explores the sacred grounds only allowed to be graced by Chiefs of the island. Spirits of those who dared to visit are still lurking, or so the story goes. The Ghosts of Old Honolulu, the last walking tour, is the tour that started it all in downtown.
Bus tours are also available, including the Ghost Procession of Pali on the outskirts of Honolulu. If you’re lucky, you can get in on the tour that only occurs for private parties or a couple of times per year for groups, Waianae at Night and unlock the secrets of the moonlit Waianae coast beginning at 6:45 p.m.
