In spite of being the top-grossing (by far) among all private attractions in Hawaii, the Polynesian Cultural Center on Windward Oahu is a long way from being a tourist trap. Tickets are pricey, but worth it. On the many-acre grounds you'll find the real-deal in Polynesian dance, artwork, crafts, and music, from the cultures of Oceania.
The place is operated with the help of BYU students, who beam with Aloha. Don't think learning center (though it is), but imagine more a three-ring circus set in a beautiful tropical garden with waterfalls and a lagoon.
