  23. At least five years – Hawaii is our favorite vacation destination!! Can’t wait to go again!

  24. Right after I came back from Hawaii 2 years ago, and aside from it being my new favorite destination, I also considered how different things are, as a musician in the field now I began researching Hawaiian music. Through Temple University my last year I was able to create an independent research project on Hawaiian music. I reached out to the legendary Pahinui family, and began developing my own network of artist ohana, and we try to find a way to share our music with everyone. We unite with music, bringing people together especially now.

  25. Found your site this past July when we started planning our trip for our 30th anniversary. Your advice and articles have been so helpful – from trip planning, tips for the long flight and most importantly the planning guides for each island. Happy Birthday!

  26. Your blog has been incredibly helpful as my wife and I plan our thirtieth wedding anniversary in January 2017

  27. I have been reading the blog for five years now. We have visited Hawaii three times and cannot wait to get back there in 2017!

  28. I’ve been reading your blog and enjoying the photos for about 7 years. Ever since I had to move back to the mainland 😞. Keep up the good work. Until my toes are in the sand again.

  29. Go Visit Hawaii helped me plan a family trip to Honolulu for my daughter’s graduation from U. of H. Manoa in December, 2009! We were lucky enough to have 3 generations celebrating Christmas that year and I followed the recommendations for restaurants and holiday events. Wonderful trip!!

  30. Even though we have been enjoying the ALOHA of Hawaii for decades…specifically Maui and Kauai, I continue to check out web sites, publications, anything that highlights the islands. Things change, new adventures come to light, so before we head to the islands…we read! GO VISIT HAWAII is a good source of information to guide you in making your Hawaii vacation plans. Mahalo……

  31. I just discovered you last weekend in a Google search after the thought that I would love to take my mom for her 80th birthday next year!
