Hawaii - Paradise in the Pacific
Located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, more than 2,000 miles from the nearest continent, the islands of Hawaii make up the most isolated archipelago on earth. Out of the hundreds of islands, the larger southeastern islands are the most commonly visited. Whether basking on a beach, hiking to a jungle waterfall, learning to hula or catching that perfect wave, experiencing Hawaii is easier than you might think, with frequent 5.5-hour flights departing daily from Los Angeles.
