With volcanoes like Mount Kilauea squirting out new land like toothpaste out of the tube, Hawaii, quite literally, is growing. In fact, there’s an expanding volcano near the Big Island that’s still a few thousand feet below the surface of the ocean. Meanwhile, there’s already enough beauty and activity in Hawaii to fill more vacations than we could ever take. With so much to choose from, first-time visitors need to be selective.
Our recommendation is to settle first on islands of Hawaii you want to see. It might be beaches, luaus and nightlife; it might be rare orchids and hikes in the rain forest; it might be quiet countryside, small towns and scenic drives.
