Life In Hawaii

May 04, 2020

What makes Hawaii life so different? 

As the most isolated population center on the planet and a true melting pot of cultures and traditions, the Hawaiian Islands are unlike anywhere else in the world. A life spent on an isolated island chain in the middle of the Pacific Ocean certainly is unique, and you can see it in everything from our local restaurants and traditions to our odd habits and even the funny and odd signs you'll find across the Aloha State.

What are the weirdest things about Hawaii? 

While we wouldn't necessarily describe ourselves as weird, the Hawaiian Islands are certainly unique. One of the weirdest things about Hawaii is our wildly diverse landscapes — breathtaking white sand beaches and lush mountains to stark rugged lava formations. Did you know that Hawaii Island alone is home to eleven of the world's thirteen climate zones?

What unique words and phrases do people in Hawaii say?

Hawaii is the only American state with two official languages and as a result, there are countless Hawaiian words and phrases that have made their way into everyday life and even more native Hawaiian words you might have trouble pronouncing if you're not from the islands. From giving directions to greetings and everything in between, you’re not a true Hawaii local unless you understand — and maybe even use — these 19 common words and phrases.
