General Information    
Climate
The Hawaiian Islands have only two seasons: "summer" between May and October and "winter" between October and April. The climate is subtropical, with a normal annual temperature of 77F, making these islands "- the peacefullest, restfullest, balmiest, dreamiest haven of refuge for a worn and weary spirit the surface of the earth can offer."
Economy
Healthy In 2006! Key indicators are positive for continuing growth in the second half of this decade. 1 However, Hawaii's cost of living is among the highest in the nation and its 2004 per capita personal income below average. In fact, sources indicate a cost of living ranging from 30% above the national average to over 60% depending upon family size and circumstances.
Geography
Hawaii is the most remote island chain in the world, over 2,000 miles from the nearest landfall. Distance makes for splendid isolation - these Polynesian islands are removed from all else but one another.Hawaii consists of eight major islands plus 124 minor islands, reefs and shoals, strung like a necklace across the Pacific for over 1,500 miles.
Tourism
Many have embraced Aloha, since visitors are Hawaii's major source of income. The Islands host over 7 million people each year whose total expenditures (excluding airfare from the mainland or other locations but including inter-island airfare) are forecast to exceed 12 billion dollars in 2006!
History
The Hawaiian Islands are stepping-stones linking East to West. Here Polynesian sensuality, American pragmatism, and Oriental exoticism weave a tapestry of cultural extremes.Hawaii's multi-cultural society has had major immigration from: Polynesia - 700; A.D. United States - 1820; China - 1852; Japan - 1868; Portugal - 1878; Puerto Rico - 1900; Korea - 1903; Philippines - 1906.
Population
The Hawaiian Islands have attracted human migrants in waves, first the Polynesians, then the whalers, the sandalwood merchants, the missionaries, the sugar planters and ranchers, the multi-ethnic traders and laborers, and finally the tourists.With a resident population of 1.3 million (2005), Hawaii has an average population density statewide of approximately 200 people per square mile. Island living is a test of tolerance.
