Hawai'i for the first time

Let me introduce myself, I'm female, 26, living in LA, and my boyfriend and I are going to Hawai'i for the first time next month to visit his relatives.
We're going to be on the big island and we want to go to Oahu also. The thing is, we're not really big nature people...I mean hikes and stuff will be ok for awhile, but after two weeks we'll want to do other more city-like-ish activities.
First, we totally don't mind tacky tourist stuff, as long as it's good tacky tourist...if that makes sense.
Anyway, I was hoping I could maybe list some things we'd like to do or try to see and maybe someone could let me know if there is anything around like that or not, so here goes:

ghosts, haunted buildings, ect.
50's style hawai'i stuff
tiki and native hawai'ian/antique art (museums, ect)
aquariums
animal sanctuaries

I hope it's ok to ask this here. Internet searches on Hawaii are really diffucult to narrow down, so I'd really appreciate any help!

Also, what kind of weather should we expect for Thanksgiving?

Thank you so much!
