No Worries Hawaii

Creator: Jerry Sprout, Janine Sprout | 2012

NO WORRIES HAWAII, a companion book to the Sprout is adventure guides for each of the islands, comes to the rescue. The book is also useful for repeat visitors or locals looking for new adventures.

Publisher: Trailblazer Travel Books

About this book
Get To The Heart of Your Destination: Half of Hawaii is 8 million yearly tourists are first timers, often unsure of which island to visit, where to stay, and what to choose to do. NO WORRIES HAWAII, a companion book to the Sprout is adventure guides for each of the islands, comes to the rescue. The book is also useful for repeat visitors or locals looking for new adventures. Readers first take an armchair voyage, in which they nail down their vacation style (a scouting expedition, a romantic getaway, a solo or group adventure, invigorating, relaxing, healing). These likings are matched with what Hawaii has to offer. A clever but simple self test allows readers to sort through Hawaii's assets: beaches, nightlife, trails, gardens, attractions, cultural sites, surfing, snorkeling, 36 categories in all, to determine which are important and which island is best. In the second part of NO WORRIES HAWAII, readers take their decisions from part one and receive all the practical and money saving advice needed to book a vacation that makes the armchair voyage become a real one. Included also is a complete list of what to pack. The third part of the book is full of tips on what to do and what not to do after arriving in the islands. Readers will deplane as kama aina (locals), having the benefit of the Sprout is 20 years of exploration. Sections include how to plan days to maximize fun and avoid hassle, finding free entertainment, car rental and accommodation money savers. Readers are advised on how to, and whether to, book tours (snorkeling, sailing, helicopter, horseback, etc.). The books safety tips are a literal lifesaver, and the everyday advice on driving, hiking, and beach going are essential forgetting the most fun out of every day. The meat of NO WORRIES HAWAII is its Best Of section, a listing of Hawaii's top attractions: museums, rainforest dayhikes, snorkeling coves, walk around beach towns, surfing spots, places to watch surfers, mountain bike trails, people watching beaches, botanical gardens, short strolls to views, cultural sites, luxury resorts, volcano hikes, bird watching forests, waterfalls, churches, remote beaches, family beach parks, golf courses, and more. Taken together, the 50 categories neatly sum up the best of Hawaii. Readers can use these listings as a reference when they get to their chosen island. NO WORRIES HAWAII is beautifully designed, complimented by more than 100 color photographs, and also contains a "wikiwiki phonebook" with all the contact numbers needed to put a vacation together.

This review is from: Fodor's Hawaii 2016 (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback) Very helpful guide for our Hawaii trip. Usually I do most of my trip planning on-line. The breadth and diversity of the Hawaiin islands made this paper copy a necessity. A few restaurants already out of business which was sad but not their fault!

    For Dummies

    A Very Good General Reference

    "Hawaii For Dummies" is a good general reference, especially for first time visitors to Hawaii. I visit Hawaii on business about four times a month, and have found the information in this guide to be generally quite accurate. In any guidebook there are obviously things that are out of date, and that's especially true in a guide this compendious. Most of the inaccuracies are prices that have increased, though in my personal experiences none of the increases I have seen has been ridiculously out of line with inflation. I find that the diagrams are good for general planning, but a dedicated map of the island you are visiting is necessary for navigation.The book has several useful features including the Post-It flags to mark pages of interest (a very useful feature) and a "Quick Concierge" section in the Appendix which is a quick reference to important phone numbers and Internet addresses. The book discusses customs, weather, selecting things to see, and choosing an island. I... 4/5 Robert I. Hedges - See all my reviews, December 22, 2006

    The best travel book I've read so far!

    Normally, I try to avoid these "Dummies" guides, as I'm just the slightest bit offended by the idea that I'm a "dummy" just because I don't know EVERYTHING. But after flipping through books at the local bookstore looking for a good guidebook for my honeymoon trip to Oahu and Kauai next October, I finally decided on this one. It's got great maps, for one thing, as well as extensive lists of hotels, places to eat, and things to do. Because the descriptions are full of personal anecdotes, I really trust that Leas has seen and done it all herself and she's being straight with me about what she thinks -- traditional travel guides always make me nervous because they're written in the third person. If I'm going to spend ... on a vacation, I really want to know what things I should do and what things I shouldn't! Possibly the greatest feature, though, is the fact that at least 75% of the entries for places and activities have web site URLs.

    The best travel book I've ever owned

    I have traveled a lot, and own a lot of travel books, but have never felt compelled to write a review of one-- until now.Three years ago, while planning our two-week honeymoon to Maui and Kauai, I bought a LOT of Hawaii books. In the planning stage, I kept finding myself returning to this book. Unlike Fodors and Frommers, the author actually makes JUDGMENTS about places and activities and tells you what the BEST of each category are. Imagine that-- rather than just providing a rote listing of the hotels on an island with a short description (and maybe a star or two), the author actually tells you which hotels to go to if you want serious romance, which are best for families, and which rooms to request (or not). Rather than listing activities, the author actually tells you which are the safest and most reliable helicopter companies, which are the best companies to to take for a private, romantic and uncrowded sailing trip. There are "heart" symbols to denote the most... 5/5 BostonMama (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Froggy is ok, but the author???

    3/5 Tony - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Froggy Goes to Hawaii (Paperback) My toddler enjoys this book, and he likes to spell out some of the letters. The illustration is fine, too. We this bought for him as he asked for a surfing book. Compared to other children's books, I don't enjoy the authors writing style. Examples are, after causing some mischief the author declares Froggy's Dad too pooped to pop(???). The father, after Froggy acts out regularly declares, "Froggy, when we get to Hawaii..." To which, Froggy replies "I know." What, ground him, put him in time out... Worse??? Unknown. It's just a kids book, but there are better authors out there. After all, parents do have to read these things over and over. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 12, 2013

    Fun Froggy Read

    5/5 Sandra K. Stiles (Sarasota, Florida) - See all my reviews This review is from: Froggy Goes to Hawaii (Paperback) Wonderful Pictures and a Wonderful Story. Froggy and his family is getting ready to go on vacation to Hawaii. When mom wakes Froggie up he is having difficulty settling down. He is told to pack and reminded to pack his swimsuit. He packs his toy plane, boat and his ukelele into his bag and runs outside in his pajamas. Once dressed they head off to the airport where we see he is still hyper. He has difficulty waiting in line, waiting to get there and thinking what he is doing before he does it. Froggie and his family have a lot of adventure on their vacation. Read the book to see what type of adventures he has. I read this book on the site "wegivebooks.org Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 15, 2013
