You can tell a lot about a place by its music. In Hawaii, lulling ukulele melodies guide poetic chants and slack-key guitar rhythms accompany swaying hula dancing. The sounds summon visions of the isles, of inhaling a tropical breeze, surfing smooth waves or sipping from a coconut. The Aloha State balances laid-back vibes with verdant cliffs, volcanic fields and rich lands that beckon adventure.

Fun FactHawaiians likes to keep things simple. In fact, the Hawaiian alphabet is comprised of just 13 letters (five vowels and eight consonants). Here are some words beyond aloha (a form of greeting): mahalo (thank you), mauka (towards the mountain) or makai (towards the ocean) and a hui hou (see you later).
