Welcome to Hawaii! Though it likely wouldn’t take much convincing, here are just a few reasons Hawaii is a great place to live and work:
Hawaii is known as the “Aloha State” and the “Paradise of the Pacific”. With its tropical weather, beautiful beaches and year-round sunshine, Hawaii attracts vacationers from all over the world.
Hawaii’s ocean coastline is consequently the fourth-longest in the U.S., at about 750 miles (after Alaska, Florida, and California).
The eight main islands, from northwest to southeast, are Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Maui, and Hawaiʻi, after which the state is named; it is often called the “Big Island” or “Hawaii Island” to avoid confusion with the state.
The island of Oʻahu is the third largest island and also the most populated. Rich in history, a visit to Pearl Harbor, the Polynesian Cultural Center, the USS Arizona Memorial are just a few of the “must-sees”.
Full of beaches, mountains and lush greenery and your choice of surfing, snorkeling, golfing, sailing, whale-watching, hiking or just lying on the beach – what more can you ask for?
Most of Hawaii experiences only two seasons; the dry season runs from May to October and the wet season is from October to April.
Hawaii’s tropical climate brings warmth and humidity. However, temperatures and humidity tend to be less extreme because of near-constant trade winds from the east.
Ready for near-perfect weather: Summer highs reach around 88 °F during the day, with lows of 75 °F at night. Winter day temperatures are usually around 83 °F; at low elevation they seldom dip below 65 °F at night.
With Oahu’s many shopping venues and entertainment attractions, there is never a lack of things to do.
Now home of “Aulani”, one of Disney’s famous resort and spa.
For a quick “get-away, It’s very easy to hop over to one of the other islands.
For sports fans, Hawaii has a lot to offer as a spectator and a participant.
For spectators, Hawaii has hosted many tournaments over the years:
- The Sony Open in Hawaii golf tournament since 1965
- The Tournament of Champions golf tournament since 1999
- The Lotte Championship golf tournament since 2012
- The Honolulu Marathon since 1973
