This paradise in the Pacific Ocean offers visitors a tropical retreat from the hustle and bustle of the continental United States. Although it is located more than 2,000 miles from any continent, the island of Hawaii offers guests an experience that is incomparable to any other state in the United States. Hawaii’s original settlers first discovered the island around 500 AD, and populated the island in the centuries following. British Explorer Captain Cook came across the islands in 1778, leading to their eventual colonization by Christian missionaries and New England Whalers. This strategic island was annexed, reluctantly at first, by the United States in 1893. After playing a pivotal role for the United States during World War II, Hawaii became the fiftieth state to join the Union in 1959. Since its statehood the islands have become a breeding ground for the tourism industry, creating an infrastructure that is supported by millions of international visitors each year.
