The audio tour is available on either CD or cassette tape and it comes with two 78 minute audio programs, a booklet, and directions to each of the sites on the tour. For more information see:

My favorite restaurant on the North Shore of Oahu is located in Haleiwa Town, not far from the Matsumoto General Store, where all the North Shore visitors buy shave ice. It's a small unassuming place, and not expensive, but the food is great. The Grass Skirt Grill has the most delicious fish plates served with a tasty lemon or garlic sauce, brown rice, and the freshest salad you could ever imagine. The owner told me once they grow their own salad vegetables on table tops at an above-ground farm in Pupukea. I drive to the North Shore often just to eat at this wonderful little cafe. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it!
