25 Things Every True Hawaii Local Does At Least Once Before They Die

With a total area of more than 6,400 square miles, the eight main islands that make up the Hawaiian archipelago may be small, but that doesn’t mean there is a shortage of incredibly unique experiences to be had. From swimming with sea turtles and learning to surf to hiking Maui’s stunning Pipiwai Trail and witnessing the beauty that is Kauai’s Waimea Canyon, here are 25 things every Hawaii local should definitely add to their Aloha State bucket list as soon as possible.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
