For many, a vacation in Hawaii is a once-in-a-lifetime luxury. But it can also be an affordable experience if you travel off-season, stay in affordable but nice hotels, and enjoy it like a local. And by saving, you can come back more often.

Some of the best parts of Hawaii -- our fine sand beaches, spectacular views and interesting trails—are absolutely free. But you don’t have to stay on the beach all day to save. From affordable transportation to unique art, food and great classes, being on a budget in Hawaii does not mean being bored.

In fact, you may end up having a more interesting experience as you stray off the beaten path to save a bit of money.
