It's easy to see why Hawaii has become synonymous with paradise - just look at those sugary beaches and Technicolor coral reefs. Sunrises and sunsets are so spectacular that they're cause for celebration all by themselves, while after-dark stargazing from Hawaii's volcano summits is unparalleled.
Thousands of gems fashion the archipelago's necklace, but only six islands welcome visitors. Each is as different as the multi-ethnic complexions of the local population, who talk story and share their passion about Hawaii as if you're long-lost pals.
