Renting a Car

If you decide to rent a car, be sure you have parking at your rental. Parking in Waikīkī is difficult most of the time. There is parking along Ala Wai Boulevard, which runs along the Ala Wai Canal on the north side of Waikīkī. Just make sure to read the parking signs, as they clean the streets twice a week in the morning and they will give you a ticket and tow your car.
