Hawaii is one of the most beautiful collections of islands in the world, and also one of the most unique places you can visit. While amazing beaches are an obvious reason to make your way there, there’s so much that Hawaii has to offer beyond that, from food to culture. Here are just a few reasons why you should head to Hawaii in 2017!
As we mentioned, the gorgeous beaches are among the top reasons people visit the islands, since they are some of the most beautiful in the world. Each of the 6 main islands is home to one or more breathtaking beaches, with the most popular being Waikiki Beach on the island of Oahu. With white sands and clear blue waters, there’s no shortage of oceanside beauty anywhere in the state.
In Hawaii, you will literally be in the perfect climate all the time. It’s warm, but at an average temperature of 80-85°F (or 26 – 29°C), you will never be too hot or too humid. Of course, cold weather is not a consideration here so you can forget the sweater in this tropical paradise!
This is one of the very best destinations for the whole family, and it’s not difficult to find places that welcome children all over the islands. In many of the hotels, you’ll have access to kid-friendly attractions, clubs, menus and much more so that everyone feels accommodated!
Everything about Hawaii is picturesque. From the sunsets and ocean views to incredible underwater life thanks to deep sea diving and snorkeling expeditions, there’s so much to see and experience in Hawaii. Look up at the night sky and star gaze on any given evening, or take a long hike around one of the many volcanoes around the islands!
Amazing Nightlife & Culture
Like any warm and sunny destination, there’s no shortage of fun things to do ranging from great bars and party venues for you to dance the night away with great tropical cocktails in hand to interesting art museums to visit! There are excellent international DJs that play on a nightly basis on many of the islands, but the hub is Honolulu; the direct connection between the islands and mainland United States. This is also where you can find cultural attractions like the Honolulu Museum of Art and ʻIolani Palace – the home of the last monarchs on the island before becoming a state. There’s plenty to learn and enjoy about the islands, it’s all up to you what you want to see and experience!
Thanks to Hawaii’s history and location, it’s an international hub and melting pot of many different cultures in one place. There is a heavy Asian influence on the cuisine, and you will find plenty of traditional Japanese, Korean, Thai and Chinese restaurants all over the islands. You can also find plenty of Italian, Mexican, French and Portuguese food as well! This isn’t to say there isn’t authentically Hawaiian cuisine as well! You can find many restaurants that specialize in dishes like Squid Lau and Kalua pig, some of the more popular dishes, made with only the freshest local ingredients.
