Discovered by Polynesians who sailed to the Big Island 1,500 years ago, Hawaii is a state rooted in many cultures and heritages. Tahitians settled and unified the islands as a royal kingdom in the early 1800s, American colonists took over the Hawaiian government in 1893, and it eventually became the United States' youngest state in 1959. Japanese, Chinese, Filipino and Portuguese influences are also notable on the islands due to a major immigration surge in the 20th century. The social fabric these diverse backgrounds have created is warm, inviting and centered on aloha aina, or 'love of the land.'
But who wouldn't love the land here? Technicolor coral reefs, marine-rich turquoise waters, sculpted cliffs, winding rivers, craggy canyons, cascading waterfalls and exotic beaches fringed with sands ranging in color from black or yellow to green or red -- there is no place on Earth like Hawaii.
And whether you seek adventure, romance or relaxation, Hawaii has it all. Traipse around the smoking craters and lava fields at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island, watch for humpback whales on the beaches of Maui, gaze at the dimming sunset from atop the sacred Hawaiian summit of Mauna Kea, or learn how to hula on the shores of Waikiki Beach.
Active travelers have an endless array of water and land sports at their fingertips -- ATV touring, hiking, biking, camping, canoe-paddling, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving and parasailing are just some of the popular activities. Tee off at one of many championship golf courses sprawled across the islands or learn how to hang ten in the birthplace of surfing.
Explore Hawaii's past at the Kauai Museum in Lihue and the Bishop Museum and U.S. Army Museum in Honolulu. Organizations such as the Maui Ocean Center, Hana Cultural Center and Museum and Waikiki Aquarium offer exhibits on Hawaii's geology and biodiversity.
Fresh fish and exotic fruits such as mangosteens, lychees, pineapples and papaya are readily available in the Aloha State. Sample native Hawaiian dishes and innovative Pacific Rim cuisine, as well as Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Korean specialties. Shave ice and plate lunches are musts here. When the sun goes down, indulge in Hawaiian nightlife with a mai tai or two in hand.
