13 Things We’re Oh So Glad You Can’t Find In Hawaii

While we often define places and things, including our home states, by the traits, characteristics, and features they possess, we tend to forget that defining something by the things it lacks is also important. Throughout the Hawaiian Islands, you will find beautiful beaches, mind-blowing scenery, and plenty of shave ice. What you won’t find are these 13 things – and we couldn’t be happier about that fact.

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/

The one thing we wish we could find in Hawaii? Our favorite mainland establishments, of course. (At least since that post was published, we can now claim Dunkin Donuts as a Hawaii establishment. Now all we need is a Chipotle and Olive Garden.)
