Subject: Layover in Oahu, Hawaii
Hi Ziners,

Using my FF miles for my Feb. trip to New Zealand, I found that I could make a free stopover in Hawaii to break up the trip. Will be staying in Kailua, on the windward side, for a week. I know very little about Oahu--the stopover is mainly to rest and break up the very long flight.

Any suggestions about what to do there, what to see? Hawaii was never on my list of must-see places, so I'd appreciate advice. Also would like to know if it's worth renting a car, and recommended car companies (especially for my tight budget).

Best, Didi
