10 Stereotypes About Hawaii That Need To Be Put To Rest – Right Now

Contrary to popular belief, people from Hawaii do more than surf, spend time at the beach drinking Mai Tais, and playing the ukulele in our Hawaiian shirts. It’s time we put the following ten stereotypes to rest. And of course, we understand that there are many more misconceptions out there, but really, we don’t feel as though we need to explain – yet again – that we don’t all live in grass huts.
