I would venture to say most mainland Americans never learn about our most recently added state’s history. It’s a bit of a blemish on our record, to be honest. But this beautiful island chain’s history is exciting and intriguing. Hawaii is the only state to have an official royal palace (I’olani Palace on O’ahu), and actually, there are several royal sites across the islands! So here’s to Hawai’i’s royal family.
My husband and I needed a relaxing trip for our first anniversary, and we decided an island would probably be just the right pace to help us slow down and soak in the happiness of our first year of marriage. This is the trip that convinced us to take an easy-going island trip for our anniversary every year!
