Tropical sunsets, palm trees, waterfalls, mountains – Hawaii is paradise and The Perfect Vacation Source wants you to experience its majesty. With The Perfect Vacation Source family friendly prices, traveling to Hawaii can become a family tradition.
Visitors to Hawaii report that the state is very family friendly. The Hawaiian word for “children” is keiki – think of how much fun your keiki will have learning to surf, playing in waterfalls or snorkeling in the azure water of the island. And because The Perfect Vacation Source offers members the lowest available price at the time of booking, visiting Hawaii has never been easier.
The island of Kauai is the oldest of the islands, and Perfect Vacation Source notes that Kauai is also one of the wettest spots on the planet with an annual average rainfall of 460 inches. Hundreds of the island’s inhabitants are wild chickens, descended from the earliest settlers. Because of the lack of predators, the chickens wander freely around the island. The Perfect Vacation Source also suggests visiting Kauai and trying to spot the area where the iconic M*A*S*H* opening sequence was filmed.
Travel professionals at The Perfect Vacation Source recommend visiting Molokai, noted by the Roman Catholic Church as the site of religious miracles that were verified and confirmed by the Vatican. The Kalaupapa Colony is only one of the two sites in the United States where a Catholic Saint resided and performed miracles. The tallest point of the island is Kamakou on East Molokai, which is 4,970 feet above sea level. Perfect Vacation Source members enjoy the low prices, so you can see the other sights in this historic area, while saving money.
The island of Lanai is known as the Pineapple Island because the island used to be a pineapple plantation. Interestingly enough, The Perfect Vacation Source notes the island itself is privately owned by David H. Murdock. Murdock purchased Castle and Cooke/Dole Foods, which had previously owned the island. There are no traffic lights on Lanai and no shopping malls either. However, for a one-time fee, hotel guests enjoy unlimited rides on buses that go between the hotels and the ferry. The Perfect Vacation Source recommends renting bicycles and off-road vehicles when you visit Lanai.
The Perfect Vacation Source suggests that members visit the beautiful island of Maui because it’s an excellent spot for whale watching. From December to early May humpback whales call Maui home. Traveling 3,000 miles of ocean in less than ninety days, the gentle giants migrate from the Gulf of Alaska to Hawaii for breeding and birthing in the islands’ warm water. The Perfect Vacation Source recommends that members keep their eyes open for whale pods, which are small groups of several adults, or groups of mothers and calves. Other places of interest include Haleakala National Park, which has a dormant volcano and Front Street that offers a broad variety of food and entertainment. Also, says The Perfect Vacation Source, Maui hosts the finish of the Vic-Maui Yacht Race.
Oahu is the most populous of the islands and its nickname is “The Gathering Place.” The island is forty-four miles long and 30 miles across. Oahu’s Mount Ka’ala is the highest mountain 4,025 feet above sea level. Here’s a fun fact about the island from The Perfect Vacation Source: Lost, Hawaii 5-0, Magnum P.I., Jurassic Park and Forgetting Sarah Marshall were all filmed in Oahu. And if you choose to visit the island via cruise ship, the Perfect Vacation Source will find you the lowest price available to make the cruise more affordable.
Hawaii is called “The Big Island” both to separate the island itself from the state, but also because with an area of 4,028 square miles it is bigger than all of the other islands combined – and it’s still growing. Because Mauna Loa and K’lauea are active volcanoes, lava flows have added 543 acres between January 1983 and September 2002.
Finally, The Perfect Vacation Source suggests that visitors enjoy a favorite food of the locals, Spam musubi. Spam musubi is a uniquely Hawaiian snack consisting of a Japanese onigiri, or rice ball, with a slice of cooked spam on it and wrapped with nori, or dried seaweed.
