Visitors never get tired of vacationing in Hawaii.  Whether they’re on their honeymoon, taking the family on a beach holiday, or just looking for a place to unwind for a week, they choose Hawaii as their destination.  According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority the number of tourists has steadily been increasing over the past few years and in the first quarter of 2013 visitor spending surpassed last year’s record breaking numbers.

It’s not surprising when you think about it.  Hawaii has some of the most pristine beaches in the world, offers first-class resorts, and a relaxed environment like nowhere else.  Plus, it’s location in the North Pacific makes it easy for Asian tourists as well as Canadian and US tourists to fly here.
