On the North Shore of Oahu sits the expansive, 42-acre Polynesian Cultural Center. The center features interactive villages showcasing the traditions of the island people of Hawaii, Tonga, Samoa, Aotearoa, Fiji and Tahiti. Each village is filled with cultural demonstrations, family-friendly activities and more. The center is also home to one of Oahu's best luau programs. The dance, traditional clothing and storytelling, visitors get to experience the pastimes and traditions of Polynesia's peoples. Plus, there's a big buffet not to be missed. The best part is a roasted pig being unearthed from an imu, or a Hawaiian underground oven. (Note: As the Polynesian Cultural Center is ran by the Church of Latter Day Saints alcoholic drinks are not served.)
