Marky Mayhem | April 2021

This app was a lifesaver! My boyfriend and I planned to do the Road to Hana.. but this app has so much more than what we planned to see! The app has Hawaiian history, secret spots you cant see from the road, and even a few local spots! We just had the bluetooth connected and let it play all day! I definitely recommend a charger for your phone and watching the time at each stop!! Theres lots to see on the Road to Hana!! :)
