Most Oahu visitors stay in Waikiki, a beautiful beach area of Honolulu that’s less than 3.5 square miles. What those visitors are missing is the rest of the state’s largest city – Honolulu! There are so many of those sights, smells, culture and even beaches, just outside of Waikiki that are waiting to be explored for a real and exotic view of this tropical metropolis.
The progressive folks at Joie de Vivre Hotels saw this opportunity and reached out to us to find out how they could partner with Pedal to offer guests a new way to experience Honolulu. One that engaged the senses and was eco-friendly. That’s when they dreamed up the new “Car-Free Vacation” packages for their boutique Waikiki beach hotels – The Coconut Waikiki and The Shoreline Hotel.
- The Car-Free Vacation package includes:
- 2-night Stay for 2
- JDV-Curated Pedal Bike Tours for Two
- Two-Day Bike Rental for Two
- Airport Transport Reimbursement for Eco Cab Hawaii
And so far, this concept is causing quite a stir! It seems people have been hungry for a new way to see Honolulu that’s low-impact and gets them off the tour bus, and into the warm, tropical Hawaiian air. The package launched June 1st, and so far both LA Times and SF Chronicle have shared the package with their online readers.
We’re thrilled to see green hotels embrace biking for their guests, and we’re even more thrilled to see Waikiki visitors exploring Honolulu’s rich culture and history on two-wheels.
