Wrapping Up The 50 Facts About Hawaii Series

image Well, here we are at the finish line of our 50 facts about the 50th State marathon. Other than celebrating the 50th anniversary of Hawaii’s statehood, my intention with this series was to highlight the uniqueness of Hawaii. I’m pleased to say that I believe we now have fifty facts under our belt to prove that point.

When I began this series, I wasn’t entirely sure what facts I’d be publishing. In fact, I didn’t even have an organized list of all fifty facts pre-set. In my mind, I reeled off a bunch of ideas, but certainly not nearly fifty of them. At times, I wondered if I may have been too ambitious, but I had faith that I’d be able to find enough interesting facts about Hawaii. I’m glad that my faith came to fruition.

As a reminder, if you’d like to see all fifty facts together in one place, I’ve created a special category, “50 Facts about Hawaii“. I’d really love to know your thoughts on this series. Please comment to let me know which fact(s) enjoyed the most? Did you learn something new that you didn’t already know about Hawaii? I know I learned quite a few new aspects of Hawaii as I was researching each fact.

After researching and publishing a fact everyday for the last fifty consecutive days, I’m ready to take this weekend off. So, I’ll catch ya next week! :-)

  1. Thanks for all your hard work putting this series together. I had lots of fun checking every day to see what the new fact was. I am sorry we are done already! :>) There were lots of fun facts, some of which I didn’t know. Hard to pick favorites but I liked the size post, amount of coastline post, I would have to go back through them to refresh my memory!

  2. I like the fact that Hawaii has the 4th most coastline in the US. Only 90 miles less than California.

    I thought we ate a lot more than 6 cans of SPAM per year on average. I know some people who eat that much every month.

    Thanks for pointing out that we have no bilboards. I wish every state would outlaw those things.

    I had no idea we had so many unique fish.
