Visiting Hawaii: A slice of Paradise at your doorstep

Living in Hawaii is about connecting with the aina (land), culture & history, foods, adventure and traveling to experience the unique environment and lifestyle of the islands. We present new stories and information on a weekly basis along with video, fun things about Hawaii and even learning to speak Hawaiian slang or Pidgin.

At This Hawaii Life, we want to inspire you to travel, eat, meet and pick up some history and culture along the way while you are visiting the islands of Hawaii. This website covers so many different facets of exploring each island for its gorgeous landscapes, cities and towns, fantastic beaches and outdoor activities that you can enjoy while exploring the islands.

Many of these recreation and adventure activities are free or inexpensive unless you want to splurge on a once in a lifetime experience like a luau experience, a helicopter ride around the islands or even something unique like fluming the ditch on old watering systems created to irrigate various farmlands and now you can cruise down them.

Check out some of our favorite topics below on some of the fun things we like to do, see, eat and drink around the islands today.
