Looking to be one with nature? The Honolulu-University hostel is located in the quiet, residential area of Manoa Valley near the University of Hawaii campus. The 8-mile Manoa Falls Trail is a must-do. Hikers walk through a bamboo forest, rainforest, and the base of the Ko’oaus Mountains before coming to the 150-foot Manoa Falls. The Lyon Arboretum is another don’t-miss. Located on nearly 200 acres of land on elevations ranging from 450 to 1,850 feet, is a University of Hawaii center for the rescue and propagation of rare and endangered Hawaiian plants. Hawaii’s greatest historical signifigance is as the target of surprize attack on Pearl Harbor by the Empire of Japan in 1941, that brought the US into the second World War. There are six major islands to visit in Hawaii: Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, and Hawaii’s Big island, each island has its own distinct personality and offers its own adventures, activities, and sightseeing opportunities. Origin of State Name: Hawaii is possibly based on the native Polynesian word for homeland (Owhyhee) Area: 10931 sq mi Population: 1,283,388
