It’s always the in season in Hawaii. The U.S.’s most tropical state is a perennial favorite for sunny getaways, largely due to its wide appeal. Families flock here to build sandcastles, explore national parks, and go on scuba diving adventures—and thanks to an array of residential-style resorts, there’s plenty of space for multigenerational travelers to spread out in style. Couples, meanwhile, find Hawaii’s breathtaking vistas, pampering spas, and luxury touches (helicopter rides, cliff-top dinners) ideal for romantic escapes, and gourmands are always satisfied by the island’s flavorful local cuisine (see our guide to the best restaurants in Honolulu). And then there’s the nature: volcano hikes, farm tours, ocean adventures, and more draw active travelers and the ecoconscious to this truly special environment.
