The state of Hawaii includes approximately 130 islands in the Pacific Ocean, many of which are uninhabited. The islands lie about 1,600 miles (2,600km) off the coast of mainland USA. The largest island, Hawaii, is known unimaginatively as the Big Island, but the state capital, Honolulu, and most of the population is located on the smaller island of Oahu, which is also the main tourist destination. The other main islands are Maui, Molokai and Kauai. Between them the islands boast an amazingly diverse geography providing endless recreation opportunities, from snowboarding on mountain summits to hiking through rainforests. It's no wonder that Hawaii is one of the most popular travel destinations in the United States: the possibilities offered by a Hawaiian holiday are limited only by the boundaries of the imagination.
Other renowned attractions of Hawaii include the Diamond Head Crater; Hilo, which has been dubbed 'Hawaii's forgotten city'; the award-winning Waikiki Aquarium in Honolulu; The Polynesian Cultural Centre; the USS Arizona Memorial; and The Haleakala National Park. With so much to choose from and an array of tastes catered to, Hawaii will leave any visitor more than satisfied and with the plan of a possible return visit in the works!
