Best Places to Picnic in Hawaii
as the "Aloha State" (in Hawaiian, "aloha" means "hello"), Hawaii is a
group of volcanic islands in the central Pacific Ocean that together
became the 50th state in 1959.
The state's name is possibly derived from a
native Hawaiian word for homeland, hawaiki or owhyhee.
Today, Hawaii, whose capital is Honolulu, is
often called the "Crossroads of the Pacific" and is a popular vacation
spot. The colorful hibiscus is the state flower.
