Best Bowling Lanes 

Tropicana Lanes

Sure, there's a lounge. There's also a game room, a small snack shop — hell, there's even a banquet room. But make no mistake about it: Step into Tropicana Lanes, and you'd better be ready to bowl. Opened in 1959 — the same year Hawaii entered the United States — the place is iconic, its soaring blue-and-orange neon sign beckoning bowlers as if to a mid-20th-century luau, Missouruh-style. That means a full complement of 52 lanes, league nights, midnight bowling and, most crucial, pitcher upon pitcher of beer. Its Hawaiian counterparts may offer you leis and roast suckling pig, but bowl three strikes at Tropicana Lanes and it's turkey time, baby!
