Recommendations for weekend trip to Hawaii with SO? Hiking, restaurants, etc. Staying at the Marriott Waikiki - have to stay on Oahu due to short timing

It's winter in Hawaii so don't do the more difficult trails. It rains quite a but suddenly and actual hikes get dangerous, fast. Stick with Pill boxes, Koko head, and def go to Makapuu and visit Pele's Chair. I lived in Hawaii for a few years and actually proposed to my now-wife near the chair. And lastly, don't let people discourage you with "too touristy" labels, there's a reason these spots are popular.

For restaurants; Check out the Shirokiya Village at the Ala Moana mall and definitely go to Pig and the Lady. Eat lots of pho, Honolulu is particular has amazing Vietnamese food. Speaking of which, be sure to go to Duc's Bistro as well. Most of the good food places are in Chinatown, which is a short cab ride from Waikiki.

Also good hiking on the Laniki pillbox trail and makapu’u light house trail. Both relatively close to Waikiki and you can get to both on the bus if you aren’t renting a car

Pretty much everything in Waikiki is a tourist trap when it comes to dinner. Some of it isn't frozen though.
I'd check out Mauii Brewery and Waikiki Brewery for low key dinner options.

Also, if you can swing it; grab dinner at Duc's Bistro. It's a small place, but trust me, it's worth going to.

Awesome ty. Sounds like it’s worth the Uber to go elsewhere for dinner so we’ll check out ducs

Thanks for all the recommendations! Made reservations at pig and the lady. Last request, any idea for a low key dinner in Waikiki that’s not a frozen food tourist trap? Yelp reviews seem pretty suspect

Get out of Honolulu.

Waze needs to implement statuses within the app. You earn points currently for reporting road situations (construction, weather, cops, hazards, etc). They should have level thresholds you unlock by earning X points from reporting conditions. The higher the status, 1) the greater the priority you get for faster routes and 2) the larger the impact of your condition reports / condition confirmations or rejections on other users’ reports. People would be greater incentivized to report conditions
