Each of the state’s major islands offers a different way of life from the leisurely small-town ways of Kaua’i, Lana’i and Moloka’i to the hustle and bustle of life in a major urban metropolis on O’ahu to the exciting and entertaining life on Maui and the rural country vastness of the Big Island of Hawaii.
