From our beautiful beaches and incredible hiking to the all-encompassing aloha spirit, there is no questioning that my heart belongs in Hawaii. And whether you’ve lived in Hawaii your entire life, have recently moved to the islands, or just love visiting as often as you can, I’m sure you can agree – otherwise, why would you choose to stay in a place with such a high cost of living?
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/
These reasons are undoubtedly different for everyone, so we’d love to hear about why you love the islands on our Only In Hawaii Facebook Page.
With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
