Insider Travel Itineraries for 9 Far-Flung Cities

The typical days and play-it-by-ear nights of locals from Honolulu — First stop of the night: Kani Ka Pila Grille at the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Resort (2169 Kalia Rd.). The slack-key guitar shows spur impromptu hula-ing from the crowd. For a proper food-with-live-music option, I like Blue Note Hawaii (2335 Kalakaua Ave.).
