We recently made a field day out of the rainy weather by venturing into Waikiki to run some errands and check out Enterprise’s car sharing service, Enterprise CarShare. It was much more fun than we regularly have because we weren’t using our car, it was a vehicle by Enterprise CarShare, giving us more of a thrill; different from a regular day driving our car.
Enterprise CarShare puts you in the driver’s seat and provides a new way of exploring Waikiki.
Enterprise CarShare provides a new way of exploring.
It’s simple to become a member! Here’s how to get started: apply online, get your member card and off you go! You can use the Enterprise CarShare app to view and rent vehicles in your area 24/7. This is also a great alternative if you don’t use your car as often as you hoped. It can be more economical than loaning/purchasing a car!
We used the Enterprise CarShare app to browse pick-up locations in the area, booked the perfect vehicle and picked it up from its designated spot.
Your member card unlocks the car. This service is completely hassle-free and no standing in line.
The keys to start the vehicle can be found in the glove compartment.
The glove compartment also holds a fuel card! That’s right, fuel is included!
Now, lets start our day in Waikiki!
Parking in Waikiki can be quite pricey. We recommend parking along the Ala Wai for free parking. Waikiki Zoo is also reasonable parking at $1 each hour. Monsarrat Avenue and Kalakaua Avenue has metered parking but it’s free on Sundays! If you park in any of these areas, it’ll limit your costs for your day in Waikiki.
We started of with a lunch at Tiki’s Grill and Bar.
Make sure to check-in on Yelp at restaurants in Waikiki for local offers. We got the Kalbi Gyoza for free!
After lunch, we strolled around the Waikiki strip. Here you will pass many local shops. eateries, Duke’s statue, hula performances, street entertainers, and best of all, Waikiki Beach.
Make sure to look on the ground as you warlk around. There are Hawaiian words that are defined.
The newly renovated International Market Place is a great place to start shopping!.
You can either take a dive in the ocean and watch the surfers or, can take a picnic break at the park.
The Honolulu Zoo is a great spot to hang out for the day. If it’s overcast, a 5-minute walk will lead you to the Waikiki Aquarium.
Or, if you don’t feel like walking, take a Waikiki Trolley!
Scooters, bikes, and Segways are also available! A guided tour is a fun little way to enjoy the sights without becoming exhausted.
Want to learn to surf? Surfboard rentals and lessons are also accessible along the Waikiki Beach.
If you’re looking for a place that hosts events, head over to Waikiki Shell. The Shell posts their events online here. Be sure to visit an event if you can!
We spent a day in Waikiki thanks to Enterprise CarShare. It’s a reliable, affordable, and convenient service that’s worth every dime!
