10 Incredible Facts About Hawaii That You Should Know Hawaii

Everyone knows Hawaii is the home of awesome tropical weather and relaxing beaches, but here are ten interesting facts you might not have known about the Aloha state!

#1 Hawaii is home to the most isolated population on Earth!

Remember, Hawaii is out on it’s own in the Pacific ocean. California is 2,390 miles away, and Japan, China, and the Philippines are even farther away —  3,850, 4,900, and 5,380 miles respectively.

#2 Hawaii is the only state where they grow coffee!

Shout out to Hawaii for saving the United States from being left out!

#3 Hawaii is responsible for growing one third of the world’s pineapples.

Commercially, at least. So if you pick up a pineapple at your local Walmart, there’s a 33.3% chance you’re holding a piece of Hawaii!

#4 The Hawaiian alphabet only has twelve letters!

They are: A, E, I, O, U and H, K, L M, N, P, W. It’s no wonder everything is so hard to pronounce…

#5 When measured east to west, Hawaii is actually the widest state in the country.

This probably comes as a surprise to a lot of people who believe Hawaii is a tiny speck out in the ocean. Nope!

#6 The Hawaiian islands are actually among 130 bits of land that make up the Hawaiian Archipelago!

These landmasses stretch for 1,600 miles!

#7 Hawaii has it’s own time zone!

This makes sense since it’s so far from the rest of the country. Here, they go by Hawaiian Standard Time (it puts them two hours behind Pacific Standard Time) and they don’t observe daylight savings time.

#8 Hawaii is home to the world’s largest and most active volcano.

You can find Kilauea Iki on Hawaii, the Big Island, which is double the size of all of the other islands put together.

#9 Mauna Kea, the world’s tallest mountain, can be found on the big island too!

This dormant volcano beats out even Mount Everest when measured from base to summit.

#10 Hawaii leads the world in harvesting from orchards.

Not only do they have tons of fresh fruits, but plenty of Macadamia nuts as well. Yum!
