Hawaii locals are absolutely incredible, with few exceptions, of course. In Hawaii, the Aloha Spirit runs deep and the locals are laid-back, happy, and barely stressed. They also love the beach, local food, and exploring spots hidden from tourists. Bottom line: those who call the Hawaiian Islands home are the best people you will ever meet.
Do Hawaii locals have any strange habits?

In addition to these 11 weird things only people from Hawaii do, many locals refuse to use their car horns, eat more Spam per capita than any other state, and welcome geckos into their homes with open arms.

Because the Hawaiian Islands are so removed from the rest of the world — after all, the Aloha State is the most isolated population center in the entire world — many people have misconceptions about the people who live here and the islands themselves.
