Here Are 14 Things Everyone in Hawaii Absolutely Loves
Hawaii is perhaps the most unique of the 50 American states, and as a result, people who call the Aloha State home have a distinct perspective on life. While living on an island chain in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has its frustrations and annoyances, most locals will agree that there is no place they’d rather live — and here are 14 reasons why. There’s certainly so much to love about Hawaii.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

Tell us, what is your favorite thing about living in the Aloha State? What else do you absolutely love about Hawaii? Sound off in the comments below!
Like anywhere, there are certainly pros and cons to living in Hawaii. If you’re new to island living, you might find yourself experiencing a bit of culture shock — after all, as the most isolated population center on the planet, the Hawaiian Islands are unlike anywhere else in the world. From the islands’ culture and history to our traditions, favorite foods, and strange habits, everything about living in Hawaii is a little bit, well, different.
What are the best things about living in Hawaii?
There’s nowhere else we’d rather call home than the beautiful Aloha State. Across the Hawaiian Islands, life is a little slower, and we choose to embody the Aloha Spirit in everything we do. From the stunning, panoramic views and that intoxicating tropical ocean breeze to the mouthwatering local food and an emphasis on ohana, there are so, so many things to love about living in Hawaii — but everyone has their own opinions. I think we can all agree that the rest of America could learn a thing or two about life from the islands, though.
Why does everyone want to vacation to Hawaii?
Isn’t it obvious? The Hawaiian Islands are home to unparalleled natural beauty as well as a tropical climate, fascinating history and culture, and mouthwatering local food. Add in the welcoming Aloha Spirit and our beautiful weather and we can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want to enjoy an island vacation.
