Hawaii is the only U.S. state outside North America
It is located in the Pacific Ocean
If you're trying to figure out where to go in Hawaii, I'd start with Honolulu, the State Capital.
Take a day trip to the North Shore. The beaches are beautiful and are natural beaches unlike Waikiki Beach, which is mostly man-made.
Leonard's Bakery's hot malasads are a must-try treat in Honolulu!
Fumi's Kahuku Shrimp is off the beaten path but well worth it as the Farm-cooked Shrimp is fresh and delicious.
Make sure Dole Plantation is on your list. Hard to believe it started as a stand and now boasts the largest maze in the world as well as a fun train ride.
Of course, you should check out Waikiki beach too! Lots of hotels line the beach and it's a good idea to take a walk on the beach and see the sights.
Duke's Market & Eatery is another spot you should stop by. There are cute little eateries in there as well as a fabulous family-friendly fine dining restaurant: Basalt.
You can't visit Honolulu without going to Pearl Harbor. Tour the USS Arizona Memorial, pay respects to the fallen and learn about how the U.S. got into World War II.
Take a walk down Kalakaua Avenue, a destination with all your favorite designer stores and lots of eating options & local stores too.
Try to get to the Honolulu Zoo if you can. It's the only zoo in the U.S. established by grants made by a sovereign monarch and is built on part of the 300-acre royal Queen Kapiʻolani Park. Totally worth your time!
