Hawaii

Hawaii-Every Families Paradise

Introduction & Brief History

We’ve watched Hawaii from afar in the movies, on TV, on travel posters and every vacation book in print. It seems everyone goes to Hawaii as often as possible. And why not? It’s paradise!

Hawaii in the southernmost of the 50 United States, and is an archipelago of 125 islands. There are 8 main islands. Looking at a map, they read (from southeast to northwest) Hawaii, Kahoolawe, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, Kuai and Niihau. The territory reaches from the sea level as far as the eye can see to a height of over 13,000 feet at Mauna Kea on the Big Island—Hawaii. If you’re at all interested in the birth of an island, the first chapter of James Michener’s “Hawaii” is a must read. Read it aloud to your kids (or have them read it aloud to you) so they can get a feel for the tremendous time and change involved.

Most of the islands have national or state parks and each has come unique feature—a glowing lava flow, the best curls for surfing in the U.S., super snow skiing, pineapple and other plantations, superb beaches, whale and dolphin areas, and the list goes on.

The history of the islands is comparatively short, humans having been a late addition to the chain. The Polynesians only arrived about 1000 to 14000 years ago, with Europeans and Asians arriving on the Sandwich Islands in the late 18th century. There are cultural centers and historical museums dotted around, including, of course, Peal Harbor.

There are so many ways to enjoy the Hawaiian Islands. You can laze in the shade on a quiet beach, take advantage of the water sports, the nightlife, the shopping, the many natural parks, or rely in the resort areas to entertain you. Where you are browsing for the various resorts, notice how many provide special children’s programs. For pure romance or for family frolic it’s hard to beat Paradise.

Family Dining in Paradise

Hawaii offers the family the most freshest, and delicious food, straight off the island! Begin your day with juicy fresh mango or pineapple, fresh squeezed orange juice, and exquisite warm pastry. For lunch, the family can look forward to indulging on a fresh cold salad, juicy burger, or sandwich. For dinner, the family can enjoy delicious freshly caught seafood, delicious, chicken, ham or other common Hawaiian delicacies. Dessert options are endless on the island-the coconut pies and cakes are however a true Hawaiian staple in need of tasting upon visitation!
