Well, that’s a subjective question. Just like choosing your ideal place to live, it will depend on your lifestyle. If you abhor the city, I’d stay away from the capital city of Honolulu. If you want access to great amenities, you likely wouldn’t enjoy living in a remote town on the island of Maui. The only advice we can definitively give, though, is that no matter where you choose to live in Hawaii, you’ll sure to fall in love.
What does it cost to live in Hawaii?
I’ll warn you: living in Hawaii can be expensive and rife with sticker shock. The average price of a single-family home in Hawaii is $780,000 and the average price of a condo is $428,000. And that’s just the home prices: Hawaii residents can expect to pay more money than Americans on the mainland for pretty much everything, including food, electricity, gas, and household goods.
