With a total of six stunning islands to explore and numerous sun kissed beaches to relax on, visitors to Hawaii really are spoilt for choice. In addition to dormant volcanoes and lush jungle to trek through, there are also a large number of interesting towns and villages to visit.
Shopping is also a popular pastime and no trip to Hawaii would be complete without purchasing an authentic aloha shirt, which comes in a wide range of colors and designs. There are plenty of places to purchase goods in Hawaii and visitors can choose between local markets and modern malls.
Visitors who are interested in the history and culture of Hawaii will find plenty of information in the main towns such as Hilo, which is home to some interesting museums such as the Pacific Tsunami Museum, Hilo Art Museum and Lyman House Museum.
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Home to Mauna Loa, the world's largest volcano and Kilauea, which is the most active volcano in the world, the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is an interesting place to explore. Private transportation is needed to explore the park, although the Hele On Bus company drops visitors at the entrance on weekdays.
Located in Kauai, this is one of the area's most spectacular natural wonders. Featuring a 13 mile long and 2500 foot deep chasm of ancient lava rock, this is a spectacular place for hiking and trekking.
Pacific Tsunami Museum
Located in Hilo, the Pacific Tsunami Museum serves as a reminder of the threat faced in Hawaii by giant harbor waves and seeks to educate people about what they can do to protect themselves.
In an area full of beautiful beaches, Waikiki is perhaps the best known and loved of them all. The beach is situated in Honolulu and visitors who arrive at Honolulu Airport can take bus 19 or 20 to Waikiki, while buses 8 and 42 also go there.
Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve
Formed in the crater of an extinct volcano and filled with a stunning coral reef full of colorful fish, the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is a fantastic place for visitors who enjoy diving and snorkeling and there are some good places to spend the night nearby.
