Back when I was in 5th grade, we were learning about the states. My teacher came up with a pretty clever idea. State Day! We were each told to choose a state and dress up like that state. The boy who chose Texas wore a 10 gallon hat. West Virginia girl wore blue and gold EVERYTHING. Me? I chose Hawaii. I ran home and came up with a pair of shades, a lei set with lei, bracelets, anklets and hair clip, and a shirt made by my best friend’s mom (Thank you, Cindy!) That said “Hawaii” and had a cool little palm tree on it. I was set! While I dressed for the Hawaii that most people think of, I could have gone with so many different things. Because Hawaii is so much more than hula skirts and beaches.
Hawaii has everything from the sandy beaches and resorts of Waikiki on O’ahu to lush rainforests on Moloka’i and a bustling city in Honolulu. Hawaii really does have something for everyone. With near perfect weather all year long, you are free to explore the sights and sounds of the islands. There are arts and cultural festivals and foods that fuse many different cultures into one cuisine… HRC (Hawaiian Regional Cuisine.). Hawaii is the only US state that produces coffee beans and the only place in the nation you can visit a royal palace.
Hawaii is the place to go when you want an exotic vacation with the comforts of the same traffic laws, language and currency. You don’t need a passport to take a Hawaiian vacation. And there is a vacation to fit most any budget and activity level! Each of the 6 islands offer such different experiences that are only a short plane ride away from each other!
Snorkeling at Molokini is said to be some of the best in the world and Ko’olau Golf Club on O’ahu offers one of the most challenging golf courses in the world! Nature lovers will enjoy hikes and treks and leisurely walks through jungles and botanical gardens and will relish the chance to catch a peek at flowers and plants that don’t grow anywhere else in the world. Hawaii truly has something for everyone! Tell me in the comments, what is your Hawaiian bucket list and then get with me and lets get you on your way! Get ready to experience Ohana (family) on the islands… Aloha!
