Who says you have to leave the country to have an incredible vacation in a tropical climate? The islands of Hawaii are certainly a lengthy flight away, but no passport is required! Hawaii has been a popular destination for decades, and for good reason. Visitors are almost always treated with warm, sunny weather and are never more than a few miles from the coastline. Plus, in a single day they can hike through the dense jungles, scuba dive in the oceans, and visit an active volcano. These small islands provide a ton of great opportunities so there’s never a shortage of things to do. Here’s our top 5 Hawaii destinations.

Diamond Head Crater 

This State monument is a massive 300,000 year old crater that many tourist climb each year to catch stunning views of both the crater and the Pacific Ocean. Be sure to wear good hiking shoes because it’s about a 1.5 to 2 hour hike!

Hanauma Bay

Voted the 2016 Best Beach in the United States, this bay, once used by Hawaiin Royalty for fishing, is now open to the public for snorkeling  and other recreation. You can rent snorkeling equipment there for a low price and spend the whole day swimming with all kinds of tropical fish and coral.

Pearl Harbor 

This naval base is full of history as a place that marks the beginning of America’s entry into World War 2. While visiting you can take a guided boat tour to see the wreckage of several US Naval ships and stop at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial.

Waikiki Beach 

This popular surfing beach is right on Honolulu’s coast and is right next to a bunch of local shops you can visit while you’re there. The beautiful scenery draws in a lot of visitors so be sure to go early to get a good spot!

Volcanoes National Park 

Rounding out our top 5 Hawaii destinations is Volcanoes National Park. This unique National Park is on Hawaii’s Big Island which requires some extra traveling if you land in Honolulu. On the other hand, views of flowing lava and volcanic rock may make it worth the trip.

With such beautiful landscapes and so much to do, there’s no wonder homeowners on these peaceful islands include the likes of Beyonce, Oprah, Julia Roberts, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Because of the year round great climate, it’s always a great time to visit Hawaii. Plus, think about it: who has ever come back from Hawaii regretting their vacation there? Probably just about nobody.
