In need of a beach getaway? So are we!
Hawaii, a chain of islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, practically defines paradise. Sandy beaches, tropical drinks, lazy live music and expansive resorts fuel the tourism that’s vital to the state’s economy.
Hawaii is hot! Formed from volcanic eruptions, the mostly-sunny state averages 80- and 90-degree temperatures year-round. Stay cool in an aloha shirt (men) or muumuu (women), then swim with the dolphins at Sea Life Park. Sign up for classes in hula-ing and lei-making to have something to show your friends. Grab a plate lunch from a lunch wagon, which usually includes meat, rice and macaroni, then head to the Hilo Art Museum.
Kauai is the northwestern-most and oldest of Hawaii’s major islands. People come to Kauai primarily for one thing: the beaches with their great snorkeling, surfing, swimming and sunning. But Kauai also boasts more navigable rivers than the other Hawaiian Islands making kayaking very popular. If the surf is calm you can even combine a river run with time paddling the bays and ocean shoreline. You’ll find kayak rentals near the mouth of the most popular rivers. Kauai has great hiking and mountain biking trails as well
By the way, your tan lines are showing.
