Aubryanna Hale, reporter

Hey Tigers, are you seeking some entertaining ideas to spice up your summer? Well, I’ve got a list of inexpensive, cheap, and free activities that may make any summer enjoyable. 

I’ll start with a list of five free activities you and your friends can do anytime.

 1. Go to a Botanical garden.

At 123 N. Kuakini St. in Honolulu, there is a free garden called Liliuokalani Botanical Garden. You can stroll through beautiful botanical gardens and just soak in the scenery, or you can take cute photos for your Instagram(IG). 

  2. Go to the Museum. 

Go to the Hawaii State Art Museum if you appreciate admiring art. You may see works of art, performances, and even events for free at 250 South Hotel St Second Floor, 250 S Hotel St #5!

 3. Visit the Humane Society. 

Check out the Hawaiian Humane Society, which is located at 2700 Waialae Avenue in Honolulu if you adore animals for company. I went there and got some amazing pictures for my IG, but my visit went free when I bought a kitten! You can spend time for free with your friends, cats, dogs, and even bunnies. You may even offer your services as a volunteer there. 

 4. Go for a hike. 

On Oahu, there are many beautiful spots to hike, but Manoa Falls is one that is always outstanding. It’s a gorgeous location with breathtaking views, yet it’s free, unlike most hikes, which typically cost money. Without a doubt, I suggest looking into it. in Honolulu at Na Ala Hele.

  5. Watch the fireworks. 

Every Friday at 7:45 p.m., fireworks are displayed in Waikiki. You may see them at the Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon, but be aware that it might get quite crowded. I recommend going to Magic Island or Ala Moana Beach instead for a much more serene setting. 

  Next, I’ll provide five inexpensive activities that will without a doubt improve your summer. These range in price from $12 to $37. 

  6.  Visit the Aquarium 

General admission to the Waikiki Aquarium on 2777 Kalakaua Avenue in Honolulu costs  $12. You can witness the lovely marine life that lives throughout our oceans and even come across some fascinating, entertaining, or amusing facts about these sea creatures. 

  7.  Go skating. 

The Honolulu location of Ice Palace at 4510 Salt Lake Blvd. is an excellent option to cool off in the summer heat. There is nothing to worry about if you don’t know how to skate because they even have trainers and a training area to use until you’re comfortable. General admittance costs $16. 

  8.  Head to the Zoo

Visit the Honolulu Zoo at 151 Kapahulu Avenue in Honolulu for another option to enjoy animals. You can enter the zoo and enjoy all of its fascinating creatures for only $19. They even offer a small playground area with an animal theme. Without a doubt, I’d recommend it.

   9. Go rock climbing

If you check out Hi Climb and show your Mckinley High School ID, you can purchase tickets for $25 the first time and then only pay $28 the next time you visit. You will remember this unforgettable experience forever. 

 10. Go play some sports. 

You should visit Sports Box Hawaii at Ala Moana Center next to Target if you enjoy sports. For $37, you can rent a box that seats six people and take part in up to nine various sports, including hockey, baseball, Frisbee golf, dodge ball, football, and Wild West shooter. 

Let’s move on to the more pricey choices. I’ve got another list of five items that would without question improve your summer tremendously all priced up to $43 to $124. 

 11. Try out an escape room. 

An escape room is one of the activities that would add excitement to your break. The Escape Game, an amazing escape room, is featured in Ala Moana. You and a group of friends can attempt to escape one of their difficult spaces for around $40. 

 12. Go to the water park. 

Going to Wet and Wild would be another great way to beat the heat. You won’t regret visiting Hawaii’s only water park, which is located at 400 Farmington Highway in Kapolei. You will not regret creating those life-long memories because it is so much fun. 

 13. Go Parasailing 

For $75, Waikiki Para sail on Oahu can take you above the water. Enjoy stunning views and an enjoyable journey over the sea without the chaotic sounds of the city. If you are under 18 then you do need a parent or guardian. Although the cost may seem excessive, you won’t regret it. 

 14.  Throw some axes

Honolulu Blade & Timber, which can be found at 506 Keawe St, is an awesome spot for blowing off steam. Entry is $30 per person, and lanes can be rented for $124. If you are under 18 then you do need a parent or guardian. It is something new that anyone can do and an excellent way to let off extra rage. 

 15. Break some things

You can experience rage and splatter at Break N’ Anger in Honolulu at 1008-A Kawaiaha’o St for $117 per person. You can express all of your frustration on the items they supply. Break, paint, and destroy anything in the space; you won’t regret it, I’m sure. You’ll probably even feel much better afterwards.
