**Kama'aina (Local Resident) and Military require I.D. proof
The Byodo-In Temple – Sacred grounds, so respect must be shown at all times. Admission to the Byodo-In Temple grounds is $3.00 per adult, $2.00 senior citizen, $1.00 child. Cash only. See our visit HERE
Waikiki Aquarium – Reasonable rates for Kama'aina and Military. $8 13-64yo, $5 4-12yo and 65+, under 4 FREE. We didn’t find it worth a pass when we were there, especially since 2 of my 3 kids were FREE. Sometimes they have little programs going on, at no extra cost. This day they had a WHALE presentation.
Dole Plantation – Also has discount rates for Kama'aina and Military. The train ride is $5 for adults, $4 for child. The Maze is $4.50 adult, $4.25 child. They have awesome Dole Whip Ice Cream or Dole Floats! Which I believe you can also receive discount on (though I didn’t realize it when we visited). Here is our trip
Honolulu Zoo - Kama‘aina/U.S. military rates are $8.00 - Adult 13+ and
$4.00 - Children 3-12 yrs. Passes are also available and worth it if you plan to visit regularly! Here was one of our first visits.
Bishop Museum - Kama‘āina/Military Admission: Adult: $12.95, Senior: $10.95, Junior: $8.95, Child, age 3 & under: Free. Season passes are worth the investment of $85 for 2 adults and up to 6 children. They have regular display changes, and often times are kid specific and interactive! We went on a normal basis, including LEGO, dinosaurs, mars, Sesame Street Health, and more! This trip they had insects on display.
NATURE – FREE!
Geocaching – Lots of geocaches, including some Dinosaur Train themed ones all over the island!
Lighthouses – There are several lighthouses on the island, most are free and are just fun to hike to and check out. Some you can only gaze at from a distance. We did a fun Lighthouse Unit, check it out! Makapu’u Lighthouse.and Tide Pools are Great!
