    Tell us about Hawaii

    Hawaii is the Aloha State. This state ranks 47th in land size and 42nd in population. It has about 1.25 million people. The capital is Honolulu. To get to Disneyland from the Hawaiian Islands, you need to navigate the Pacific Ocean.

    Have you ever wanted to visit this state? Many programs on the Travel Channed feature the beautiful and romantic Hawaiian Islands.

    Re: Tell us about Hawaii

    I love Hawaii! We went to the island of Kauai on our honeymoon, and we had the best time! The weather is awesome, it's feels like you are being hugged all the time. We jumped off of waterfalls, hiked through rainforests, went kayaking, did a helicopter tour over the most beautiful scenery. It was just awesome!

    We're going to Maui in June, and I can't wait!

    I went to Maui when I was 17years old. I loved it. It is sooo beautiful, the water, the weather, the surfer guys, everything. I really want to go back. Only thing, it is expensive there.
