Island/Area Info

Which Islands to Visit/Move?

I think it really depends on what you are looking for. If seclusion/beauty is at the top of your list, I would go with Kauai. If shopping, nightlife, lots of people, then go with Oahu. If you want to explore Volcanos, the Big Island. If you want a blend of beauty and a little more populated, then go with Maui.

If your a country person like me, fishing, hiking, hunting, crusing, diving, then the Big Island is a fun place. If you like city life, Oahu is the place to be. Hilo is fun to visit, but one town can get small really fast since the rest of the island closes down pretty early.
