There is no doubt that Hawaii is beautiful but i have heard some negative comments about Hawaiians( not native), like people from there are lazy, that they don't have the struggles of people on the main land. Have you guys experienced that?

I worked with someone who grew up in Hawaii. He said he struggled when he first moved to the mainland with the pace of life and professional expectations. However he adapted and was a key team member.

I never thought of Hawaiians as a people (besides the native Polynesians) before that. Hawaii just a place to me.

On the contrary, I'd say most people I've talked to think of Hawaii as Heaven on Earth.

I haven't had the motivation to visit there myself, but some day.

But see that's what i've noticed, most praise Hawaii for it's beauty but when come from people that were born there or lived there for awhile they tend underestimated their capability to adapt to the main land

Only complaint I ever heard about Hawaii was it was too expensive and they have a horrible homeless population other than that everyone seems to love Hawaii but I have never been so I could not tell ya

I wasn't a big fan of Honolulu but the rustic beauty of the Big Island was absoultely incredible. I have never heard negative stereotypes about people who live in Hawaii (including transplants).

I think that stereotype is probably real, at least for me. I don't think of Hawaii as a place where people kick their butts working from 8 to 8 Monday through Saturday, to be honest. That may not be fair, but that's the vibe I got while visiting. And, honestly, if I lived there I don't think I could make myself work from sunrise to sunset in such a paradise. And THAT's why I don't live there.....

I have a close friend who was born and raised in Hawaii and her family is Polynesian, and she told me there is a bit of racism toward people from the mainland ... they may not show it, but they talk about it among themselves. I guess I could understand why ... a bunch of people invading their paradise .. It still wouldn't stop me from going

Other than the fact that it's expensive and isolated, Hawaii is probably one of the least-bashed states in the country.

In my four decades on this earth, I don't think I've ever heard anything negative about Hawaii or Hawaiians.
