What You Need To Know About Hawaii

The warm summer sun. The caressing tropical breeze. Lively luaus. Large colorful flowers. The cool and relaxing sound of the ocean. Barbecue parties. White sands. Fresh fruits. Powerful waves good for surfing. A place filled with culture. These are just a few of the descriptions of Hawaii.

Hawaii has often been referred to as the haven of vacations and as the place closest to paradise. This state is located in an archipelago in the North Pacific Ocean, thus the paradise-like environment and culture.

If California is known as the “Sunshine State” and Chicago as the “Windy City”, Hawaii is dubbed as the “Aloha State.” If you notice, Hawaiian people greet each other with “Aloha”. Even when they talk on the phone, instead of “Hello?”, “Aloha” is used.

Eight main islands compose this state. They included Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Niihau, and Kahoolawe. Hawaii is also called the Big Island. This island has generally a rugged coastline, lava deserts, deep valleys, and hollow gulches.

The island of Maui is dubbed as the Valley Island. The largest crater in the whole world is found on this Hawaiian island. Oahu is occasionally called the Capital Island, for this is where the state’s capital, Honolulu, is located. The Garden Island, or Kauai, is mostly composed of mountains and mountain ranges. Molokai is known as the Friendly Island. The reason behind this is that the people who live here are very friendly and hospital to its visitors. Known as the Pineapple Island, most of the island of Lanai is owned by a pineapple company. In the island of Niihau, tourism is prohibited. The last of the main islands, Kahoolawe, holds the nickname Target Island. The U.S. military forces actually used Kahoolawe as a target during practice. However, most of the native Hawaiians regard this island as a sacred place.

Hawaii Travel

Hawaii Travel. In a word or two It will be a fun time when I make my trip out to Hawaii for a vacation. Hawaii can be thought of as a destination but I tend to think of it as a fantasy dream. For years I have been seeing commercials and print about the beautiful islands. But what could I do with no money? not much. Well I finally saved up enough money to make my Hawaii travel a real Hawaiian vacation and I will be traveling first class. What a way to start a vacation, flying first class in a double-hulled 757. I think I will be able to wear my high heels considering how much leg room is available in first class. What to do? Where to visit? What sites to see? What activities to participate? These are all apart of the complicated decisions that stress a newbie traveler such as myself.
