"I love Sansei Sushi on Maui. They have the freshest fish and most creative dishes. It's always a must when I am home visiting."
Favorite Place To Stay
"We are so lucky to have such great friends and family in Hawaii, so we usually stay at homes along the beach (which is great for morning walks along the shore with Ryan)."
Favorite Places To Shop
"Ryan and I love shopping at our favorite store on the island, The Barn 808 (pictured). I also frequent I Heart Hanalei on Kauai—it's the sweetest little boutique and bikini shop."
Favorite Watering Hole
"Tahiti Nui is the best dive bar ever! It's right in Hanalei Town on Kauai where you will find all the locals hanging out. They have live music and karaoke—it's just a classic, no-frills spot."
"Tunnels Beach has the most crystal-clear water and amazing views of the Na Pali Coast."
