The Hawaiian Islands 4 Hot Spots Perfect for Millennials

The Hawaiian Islands 4 Hot Spots Perfect for Millennials

It's All About the Experience



If you read the research on millennials, you know that they're not obsessed with possessions. More than anything, they value authentic experiences. So we handpicked four destinations throughout the Hawaiian Islands that deliver what millennials crave:



1) Kauai | Hanalei Town
Visitors can immerse themselves in Hawaii's heritage by going on a taro farm tour and attending ukulele concerts in this charming small town. And millennials just may break the possessions rule to take home genuine made-in-Kauai carvings from rare, native woods.



2) Maui | The Upcountry
Considered the heartland of the island, Upcountry Maui is more rolling hills and misty mountains than sandy beaches and swaying palms. It's also where the paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) culture lives on in rustic outposts.



3) Oahu | North Shore
Renowned as a surfing mecca (waves can reach up to 30 feet in winter), the North Shore is also an eat-like-a-local paradise with food trucks turning out everything from shrimp plates to loco moco. For dessert, we recommend hot malasadas or rainbow-hued shave ice.



4) Island of Hawaii | Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Although this UNESCO World Heritage Site is more "on the radar" than our other picks, it's far from ordinary. The otherworldly landscape, walk-in lava tube and drive-in volcano are all Instagram-ready. So is the stunning view of Kilauea's molten hot lava flowing into the sea.



Rediscover the island of Hawaii

Born from volcanoes and ever-evolving, the island of Hawaii has stories to tell. A year after the dramatic eruption within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the island is abundant with natural wonders, cultural heritage and new ways for you to #LetHawaiiHappen.

While Kilauea is still an active shield volcano, the alert level has dropped to normal and the lava flows have ceased. The park welcomes visitors every day to hike the scenic trails, drive Crater Rim Drive and Chain of Craters Road, and view the lava-sculpted landscape by air.

Hawaii's largest landmass is always expanding and boasts incredibly diverse terrain — from a newly formed black-sand beach to waterfall-filled rainforests. While your clients may be drawn to the beaches, they'll thank you for recommending ways to dig deeper into Hawaii's rich culture. Perhaps they will lend a hand on the trails of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, meet the farmers who cultivate vanilla and cacao, and savor international flavors.

Honolulu, on Oahu’s south shore, is the main gateway to Hawaii and a major gateway into the United States.

Hawaii

Hawaii

Hawaii is the newest of the 50 U.S. states (August 21, 1959), and is the only U.S. state made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of an archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean, southwest of the continental United States, southeast of Japan, and northeast of Australia. Hawaii’s natural beauty, warm tropical climate, inviting waters and waves, and active volcanoes make it a popular destination for tourists, surfers, biologists, and volcanologists alike. Due to its mid-Pacific location, Hawaii has many North American and Asian influences along with its own vibrant native culture. Its capital is Honolulu on the island of Oʻahu.
