Insider Tips

  • Hawaii has 10 of the world’s 14 climate zones: from tropical and continuously wet to hot desert and periglacial ice climates, you see and experience pretty much everything Earth has to offer on one island (well techinically 137 smaller islands that make up the state, but you get the idea).
  • There are no advertising billboards in Hawaii. The first of four USA states to ban billboards (ahead of Alaska, Maine, and Vermont), Hawaii enjoys wide open spaces free from billboards so that our residents can enjoy distraction-free, scenic driving.
  • Gambling is illegal in Hawaii. Hawaii doesn’t have casinos, nor does it allow for gambling onboard a ship, or anyplace gambling activities can take place.
