Do you remember what roads you took where the traffic problems occurred? We have an entire day to get to the Northshore, so a leisurely route with lots of stops should not be a problem.
We go to Waikiki twice a year. You stay away from rush hour. Mornings it's coming into the city, afternoon it's heading west out of the city. We usually circle to the East when we head up to Turtle Bay. Never had a big issue with traffic and we've been doing this for years. Unless we're only in Waikiki for a couple of days like next month, we always have a car.
