Backroads and Byways of Hawaii (Countryman Press, October 2013) offers themed itineraries to the state of Hawaii. Packed with color photos, this guide to the state of Hawaii offers more than travel advice.
The book features themed itineraries to Hawaii geared towards first time visitors and frequent island explorers. Themes include haunted Lanai, wild Maui and finding solace on Molokai. Each itinerary details what you’ll see along the drive as well as locally owned businesses to shop for a shave ice, pick up a piece of local art, or bed down for a funky B&B experience.
Here’s the official Amazon blurb:
Michele Bigley, author of Explorer’s Guide Kauai, has really gone out of her way in Backroads & Byways Hawaii, taking on Hawaii as a whole. Exploring the little-known sides of all the islands, she provides out-of-the-ordinary itineraries, all including lodging and dining highlights, to make your trip memorable. Each chapter offers itineraries focused on themes,among them Historic Big Island; Under-the-Radar Oahu; Maui for Foodies; and Haute and Haunted Lanai. Chapters cover not only the must-see destinations for each island but also the less-traveled roads, like the back road from Hana to Haleakala on Maui, or routes through the Windward side of Oahu. With expert advice on inter-island hopping to keep the budget reasonable, like economical direct ferry routes that also have far more local appeal. See the real Hawaii!
