The Hawaiian Islands are known for many things, including our stunning beaches in a variety of beautiful colors, constant rainbows, and friendly residents. Plus, we’ve become pretty well-known for our volcanic activity and unique geological formations.

Is Hawaii a great place to live?
There’s so much to love about calling a tropical paradise like the Aloha State home, from the light ocean breeze and bright sunshine to the slow, relaxed pace of life. It’s far enough from mainland America that it feels like a different country entirely, but we still get all the perks of living in the United States.

Where is the best place to live in Hawaii?
That depends on what you value about your living environment. If you want to enjoy the hustle and bustle of a big city while also easily accessing stunning beaches, I would suggest living in the capital city of Honolulu, but if you prefer laid-back country vibes and plenty of wide-open spaces, I would look into Hawaii Island. If a charming small town is what you seek, look no further than Kauai. Luckily, there’s a little bit of everything here in Hawaii, and finding the perfect place for your family is just a matter of doing a little research.
