Hawaii

Hawaii has everything you can imagine.  Start with a visit to the island of Oahu to experience the amazing Waikiki Beach area, visit Pearl Harbor and learn about 'the day that will live in infamy", and check out the monsterous waves along the North Shore.  Next stop off at the island of Kauai for the natural beauty it has to offer.  Take an amazing helicopter tour of the island so that you can enjoy the beauty of Poipu Beach, fly over the grand canyon of the Pacific, Waimea Canyon, and top it off viewing the Napili Coast with all of its nature wonders visible only by boat or helicopter.  Next stop is Maui, another island with more natural beauty than anyone can imagine.  On Maui you can watch the sunrise from the top of Haleakula at 10,000 feet above sea level, then ride a bike down the mountain dropping layers of clothing as you go from the chill of the high elevation back down the the warmth of the Hawaiian temperature.  Relax along Ka'anapali Beach or take look into the history of the whaling industry in Lahaina.  Last stop of the major islands is the Big Island, Hawaii.  Here you have two different worlds, fly into Kona and see the volcanic side of the island.  Lava flows of the past have created a scenery that looks like it is another world.  Take a drive to Hilo and it's all different, very tropical an lush.  Only on the Big Island can you go skiing and surfing all in one day.  At the peak of Mauna Kea you will find snow covering the ground, yes I said snow, because at 13,803 feet above sea level it's a bit cold.

 

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what Hawaii has to offer!!
