The servicemen of Pearl Harbor's naval base were taking some much-needed R&R between early-morning repairs inside Hangar 37 when suddenly they heard a buzzing overhead. With the humming of their own planes and battleships periodically filling the air, this rapidly approaching sound wasn't foreign to their ears, but this instance proved to be drastically different. Thunderous explosions soon overtook Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona struggled to stay afloat as the Imperial Japanese Navy delivered a surprise military strike, which resulted in one of the most devastating attacks on American soil. With a mission to preserve the history of this tragic event, Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor opened that very same hangar to the public, hundreds of feet from where ships burned and men courageously fought more than 70 years ago.

Hangar 37's 42,000-square-foot space currently houses many of the museum's artifacts, which include a World War II–era B-25B bomber, Japanese Zero, and naval planes such as the SBD Dauntless. Also open to the public, Hangar 79 displays the actual bullet holes that pierced its windows during the attack, while an authentic WWII maintenance shop contains an exhibit that explains how planes ran on Lucky Strike cigarette materials. Visitors can experience the museum's ever-evolving collection of exhibits––which has included segments dedicated to the Korean War's MiG Alley and the Flying Tigers––through guided tours in both hangars and submerse themselves in the virtual world of the museum's combat flight simulator.

Hawaii’s lush beauty is too abundant to be experienced solely on foot, which is why Botanical World offers up-close-and-personal views of the Big Island's meticulously kept botanical gardens with services including ziplines and Segway tours. Segway riders speed past swaths of exotic plants, trees, and scenic waterfalls as they explore the garden's meandering pathways during self-guided or guide-guided tours. Elevated zipline trips, meanwhile, send guests soaring over the Hanapueo Streams falls, showing off trees’ receding hairlines as well as stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the nearby Mauna Kea volcano.

Elsewhere in the garden, guests can explore the arboretum, which houses a sampling of Hawaii's vast array of trees, whereas the paved quarter-mile Rainbow Walk contains a cactus garden, perennial plants, and a wall of orchids. Adventurous young ones can attempt to navigate the world's second-largest permanently-planted maze, covering a space as large as a football field.

For owner Nicole Robinson and the instructors at The Roof, yoga classes are about connecting with students in both the physical and spiritual sense. To encourage these connections, Nicole and her team lead sessions seven days a week from within the 2,300-square-foot Kailua Town studio, a sister studio to Hot Yoga by the Sea. Here, students of all levels improve their minds for meditation and body for flexibility during a variety of physical practice from Rock the Roof Flow to Twilight Vinyasa to Rooftop Restore. As muscles strengthen, minds can seek out inner peace on the spacious rooftop patio where twinkling string lights and panoramic views of Hamakua Marsh intermingle with the stars above and an occasional full moon during twilight yoga sessions.

To further encourage clients' search for calm, Nicole and company provide regular meditation workshops and yoga retreats as well onsite childcare services. The latter service, dubbed Yoga Playtime, provides a safe space for kids 1 year to 6 years to practice yoga and learn as parents participate in yoga classes or hide from their kids in a bathroom stall.

Scare Hawaii recognizes that each of its visitors is unique. One might have a fear of the dark; another might be terrified of skeletons. With this in mind, the haunted house's creators seek to individually stoke each interloper's fear, growing it like the puddle of ectoplasm on a ghost's bed. What goes on inside the house is kept a close secret for maximum effect, but it will include dim foggy corridors, chilling special effects, and sudden spooks by actors.

Each fall, a team from United Pacific Builders transforms the tunnels and hospitality room beneath Aloha Stadium into a maze of halls and rooms where ghastly creatures await fresh souls to spook. On top of providing Halloween chills, the team behind the event supports the community by donating a portion of the proceeds to the Hawaii Meth Project.
