Hawaii Collection – Oh my, Hawaii!

Some posts on this site contain affiliate links, meaning if you book or buy something through one of these links, I may earn a small commission (at no extra cost to you!). Opinions are always my own and I’ll never promote something I don’t use or believe in.

I’ve been blessed to have been to Hawaii four times in the last couple of years (and I am due for another trip). There is nothing quite like this island paradise. It breath-taking, relaxing, fun, tasty. You can be adventurous as you want, explore the local cultures and foods, or do absolutely nothing and just enjoy the tropical breezes.

I know the East Coast has the Caribbean and I’ve been there enough times to know that Hawaii is very, very different. Which is why I wanted to catalog and share my posts about this very special place.

Hawaii

Also known as the Big Island, and it is the biggest of the Hawaiian islands. The ecosystems are so varied it’s amazing, from lush green pastures where cattle graze to craggy volcanic rocks to black sand beaches and amazing snorkeling!

It’s all about the beaches in Maui, 30 miles of beaches to be exact. It’s also famous for the Road to Hana drive and Hawaii’s highest peak (volcanic Haleakala). But don’t miss the waterfalls either!

Oahu is the third largest island and home to the state capital, Honolulu. Iconic spots include Waikiki Beach, the North Shore, and Pearl Harbor. And great food festivals! I’ve been to 3 amazing events on the island: Corks & Forks, SPAMJam and the Hawai’i Food and Wine Festival.

Thank you for browsing my Hawaii collection. I hope to continually be adding to it!

If you have ever been to the islands it may be difficult to decide which one to visit, Hawaii magzine has a great little post describing the islands which might help you make a decision.

How about you? Have you been to any of the Hawaiian Islands? What’s your favorite part?

I love Hawaii so much. I keep dreaming of getting stationed there, but alas. The military hasn't been terribly kind to us by assigning stations overseas. :(
