3 Reasons to Go to Hawaii
Hawaii is on many vacationers’ bucket lists, but have you ever stopped to wonder why? The short answer is that Hawaii has tons to offer across its eight islands. Whether you’re a fan of the outdoors, history, or just want to chill out and relax, chances are there’s something for you in the “Aloha State.” Here are three reasons you should start planning a trip to Hawaii.
Tropical serenity awaits you in Hawaii
One of Hawaii’s other state nicknames is “Paradise,” and for good reason. From its excellent temperatures, which average 78-85 degrees year round, to its plentiful beaches you’re bound to find relaxation and serenity when you head to Hawaii. Beyond its lush sights and relaxing beaches, there are plenty of spas throughout the islands offering even more opportunities to unwind. Maui’s Grand Wailea Resort and Spa is one such location, and is famous for its natural seashell spa treatment using local seashells.
Hawaii also boasts a wealth of naturally-occurring hot springs which are the perfect way to relax after a long day of hiking. One of the state’s most famous springs is the Ahalanui Thermal Pool, which is heated by lava from underground and features a mixture of seawater and fresh water. Other popular destinations for hot springs include the Kapoho Tide Pools and the Pohoiko hot springs.
Hawaii has something for everyone
Whether you like learning about natural history, are interested in America’s military history on the islands, or are a thrill seekers, there’s something for everyone in Hawaii. This variety of recreational options makes the state the perfect destination for families of all ages. In the realm of history museums, a trip to Hawaii wouldn’t be complete without a visit to U.S.S. Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park as well as the USS Arizona memorial, both located in Pearl Harbor. Both of these maritime museums offer insight into America and Hawaii’s involvement in World War II. Another great museum to check out when you go to Hawaii is Oahu’s Lucoral Museum which offers insight into Hawaiian natural history.
Thrillseekers and nature enthusiasts will also find a bounty of exciting activities across the islands. Besides hiking Oahu’s famous “Stairway to Heaven,” or Haiku Stairs, a trip to Hawaii wouldn’t be complete without taking a snorkeling or scuba diving expedition. Both options offer an unparalleled opportunity to see fish and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Who knows? Your Hawaiian vacation may also be the time you finally decide to try your hand at surfing — there are plenty of options for beginner and advanced surfing lessons throughout the island.
If all those activities sound like you might work up an appetite, fear not! There are plenty of delicious restaurants in Hawaii, too. For traditional Hawaiian fare (including spam katsu!), it’s hard to go wrong at Aloha Eats. Other food offered across Hawaii includes Filipino cuisine, a retro diner, and the high-end destination restaurant, The Original Roy’s in Hawaii Kai, run by chef Roy Yamaguchi.
World class accommodations await you in Hawaii
In case you couldn’t tell by looking at just a few of the spas listed above, Hawaii is equally impressive when it comes to lodging options. Some options are run by familiar hotel brands like the Ritz-Carlton and Hilton, while others, like Turtle Bay Resort, have a more local feel. Wherever you choose, one thing is certain: you are bound to have an incredible time. The hotels throughout Hawaii feature excellent accommodations, like breathtaking views, poolside dining, restaurants, and private beach access. With some prices starting as low as $100 a night, Hawaii has an option for every wallet size, making it a great destination for budget-conscious travelers, too.
A trip to Hawaii is truly unforgettable. With great hotels to stay at and a bevy of activities for even the pickiest of travelers, it’s hard to imagine having a bad time when you visit the Aloha State. Whether you’re looking to unwind or are seeking the latest adrenaline trip, you’re bound to have a memorable time when you visit Hawaii.
