However, if you can look past the long flight, than you will experience a vacation of a lifetime. It is recommended that when visiting travelers rent a vehicle to truly experience everything that Hawaii has to offer.

The Hawaiian Islands include: Maui (the Valley Island), Kaho'olawe (the Target Island), Lana'i (the Pineapple Island), Moloka'I (the Friendly Isle), O'ahu (the Gathering Place), Kaua'i (the Garden Isle), and Ni'ihau (the Forbidden Isle).

If you come to Hawaii expecting to see third world island homes, be expected to be called a Haole or foreigner.
