It's a top tourist destination, but would you enjoy living there?
Assuming that money is not an issue.

Discuss.

I honestly don't know if I would, but if given the opportunity, I'd try it. Just for the experience, if nothing else.

I could have an apartment or condons there to stay there for the summer or vacation, not to live there permanent.

It would be a cool place to live for the summer or winter, but I woudn't want to live there permanantly. I would probably get tired of it after a while. (Eespecially since it's so isolated from everything)

Id rather pull my hair out than get stuck on an island forever (no matter how nice it is), that would get boring real fast.

Yeah I love visiting Hawaii, but living there would be entirely different. As our pilot mentioned to us when landing in Honolulu a few months ago, Hawaii is THE most isolated group of islands on the planet. It takes 7 hours by plane to get just about anywhere from there. I think I'd go stir crazy after a while.

Plus, I like some variety with my weather and four very distinct seasons.

i think the over all high temperatures and humidity all year round would kill me.
i am from Indiana and very accustomed to the very unpredictable weather here. If i moved to Hawaii i would feel very bland because the weather doesnt change that much.

I could live on Oahu for sure. The other islands are a little too slow for my liking, but I would visit any of them again.

I enjoy roadtripping way too much to get stuck on an island.

I agree with almost all the posts on here, I don't I could live in Hawaii because it's 2,000 miles to the nearest mainland, and just like Drover said, I like roadtrips too much to ever live in an island, and the weather there is too monotonous, I like having 4 seasons(which we don't have here in South FL)
