Hawaii all year

Hawaii is a perfect vacation destination year round. Some months, however, are even more perfect in particular parts of the islands.  Here’s how to spend the entire year in spectacular weather.

"How to enjoy great weather in Hawaii year round".  I said - move there. Daughter said - go outside.

Four Maui's out of 12 places? Seriously over-weighted in your story. Maui is beautiful but the other three principle islands all offer more places to see, things to do, and are as, or more, beautiful. We've been to Maui once and the other three several times each, and we'll go to the three again but not Maui.

I have no money and no job. I have looked for a year, no one wants me :(  I am old and want to go to Hawaii. Someone give me 1 million dollars? HOW ABOUT THAT ZUCCKER GUY HE HAS plenty to spare. Or someone offer me a job in Hawaii so I can live there?

Spent 4 years on Oahu when I was in the Marines. For the most part the people were very friendly.  There will always be the 10 percent who don't like non locals.  I befriended a lot of Hawaiian people and I have to say that most non locals deserved just what they got for acting like total a-holes.  Aloha

Oahu is a beautiful island that unfortunately has Hawai'i's biggest city on it. H-town is a big city, and it has all the problems that go along with one.

Still, I never ran into anyone who was less than very friendly. I suspect the "cousin" and "Ohana" are way overdone, but every nice person says things they don't exactly mean to visitors. Hawai'i is remote and therefore expensive, and the locals have to do their part to entice you back...

The Big Island, Hawai'i itself, is a fascinating place, and within four hours from your starting point, you can visit desert, jungle, highlands, lowlands, wetlands, mountains and volcanos, and that just doesn't suck. The weather ranges from dry on the West sides of the islands to very wet on the East. And it is the best place to get Kona coffee cheap--and by cheap, I mean, go to Target in Kona and buy a pound of pure, uncut Kona coffee for about 20 bucks, half price of the same coffee at the plantation in the same package.

The biggest drawback to me is that the speed limit all over the state is pedestrian. Agonizingly slow. Grandma on a unicycle can pass traffic.

But I am a 70's drag-racer dinosaur...

There simply aren't enough words to describe how glorious Hawai'i is.
