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.
From Hawaii’s first residents and the first Europeans visiting the islands in 1778 to the establishment of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1795 and Hawaii’s admittance to the United States of America in 1959, the Hawaiian Islands are steeped in history, heritage, and culture. And nowhere will you find more history than in the Aloha State’s oldest towns. Our beautiful islands have undergone monumental change throughout history, and these old-fashioned towns only get better with age. From vibrant shops set up in plantation-style storefronts to historic landmarks and everything in between, there is certainly something special about these 9 old-fashioned towns.
