Go to SD for a week to visit and see what you like.
Everyone likes different things and has different standards.
Basically, north of the 8 and along the coast are the best. The more south, the worse it is. Do not go south of Ocean beach/point loma.
La Jolla is real nice - expensive.
Downtowns area are nice - little italy.
Clairmount is older Military base like places.
The inland area on the north side is newer - strip malls, expensive apartments - kinda Corporate like new delvelopements. known as Golden Triangle area I guess. More trees there.
Cheaper inland then along the coast - also warmer there. Like Poway, Rancho, etc.

Recomended Guide Books for Hawaii?

My family is just begining to plan for our first trip to Hawaii. We want couple of good guide books to help us plan everything. Where to stay, what to do, etc.

There are so many books out there, I was hoping someone would have a suggestion to help us.

Thanks in advance!

It depends on which island you're going to. This should help you get started:

when you get to the baggage claim area, or front airport lobbies, they have tons of Free brochures (some with discount coupons)! Taxi's are too expensive, look in one of the free brochure's for a round trip Shuttle service.

have fun and Aloooooooooooooooooooooha! :o)
p.s. our avatars look almost the same, lol
