13 Things You Have To Do Before You’re An Official Hawaii Local
There is perhaps no better place to live than the paradise that is Hawaii. Whether you have never lived outside of Hawaii, or are contemplating a move to the Aloha State, there are a few things everyone has to do before they can claim their status as a true Hawaii local. Some of these things are silly, while others are much more serious, but we would like to believe that every local has done these 13 things. This is all meant to be in good fun, and we understand that there is much more to becoming a Hawaii local than completing a silly list on the internet, so please don’t take this too seriously.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
