HAWAII, January 28, 2014 – Hawaii beckons frost bitten mainlanders with warm waters, lush rain forests and volcanic deserts. Average daily temperatures that hover between 75 and 85 degrees are heaven like for those stuck in sub-zero chill zones.

Hawaii is six islands, the Big Island of Hawaii, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai or Maui, all offering different adventure and relaxation options that are as unique as you.

On the Big Island of Hawaii find Kilauea, the world’s most active volcano and Maunakea the world’s tallest sea mountain. While there, visit the Hilo botanical gardens offering stunning waterfalls, local artisans and authentic food.

The Canoe House at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel is one of the island’s most romantic places to have dinner while partaking in most visitors’ favorite activity, watching the sunset. Under the steady hand of Chef de Cuisine Allen Hess, the Canoe House offers innovative island inspired plates like macadamia nut crusted snapper with coconut curry sauce.

On Hawaii, Royal Kona Resort and the Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa at Keauhou Bay are two ‘best values for your vacation dollar’ options. Both are popular with tourists and locals alike offering unhurried places to watch the spectacular Kona sunset.

For those seeking whale watching, the winter months offer world-class viewing as humpback whales join tourists seeking the warm waters of the Auau channel.

If sunrises are on your to-do list drive up to Haleakala National Park Crater where, at 9,740 feet, solar exhibitions are said to never be the same twice. Coming down from the clouds, explore the rain forests, and your passion for photography, with Photo Safari Hawaii taking a half or full day private Eco tour with a knowledgeable photographer as guide.

Maui is home to “Hawaii’s most Hawaiian Hotel” where a visit includes plenty of history and a glimpse at what they call “the real Hawaii.” Ka’anapali Beach hotel is now offering an Island Romance Package for Valentines Day that will include ocean view rooms, breakfast, rental car, dinner for two and other amenities.

Lazy days on the beach, snorkeling over the reefs, or swimming in warm waters, the island of Oahu attracts sun and sand seekers as well as the winter surfers who ride the glass waves at the North Shore beaches.

Honolulu International Airport (HNL) is located on Oahu. There are direct flights from the US to Maui, Kauai and Hawaii Islands. Before you finalize your travel plans, make sure your plane is landing on, or you have a secondary flight to, your final destination.

Alaska Airlines has more flights to Hawaii than any other airline usually flying to Honolulu where inter-island flights will take you to Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island.

Before leaving Oahu visit the historic beaches at Waikiki, and then revisit history at Pearl Harbor National Park.

On the islands of Kauai the hale and hearty can experience a vacation that soars from the Waimea Canyon to the cliffs of the Napali Coast on. For leisurely strolls, Kauai is filled with smaller, historic small towns like Koloa – where no building can be built taller than a coconut tree.

Said to be the birthplace of the Hula, Molokai Island stands apart as the island where nature rules. Molokai is the fifth largest and from the highest sea cliffs in the world to the longest continuous fringing reef in Hawaii, Molokai is about outdoor adventure. With acres of untouched wilderness and unspoiled coastlines visit the Hawaiian Fishponds dating back to the 13th century and the Kilauea Lighthouse at the National Wildlife Refuge.

After being able to thaw out, the best part of a Hawaiian vacation is the diversity the islands offer.
