The state of Hawaii is the only state completely surrounded by water with no territory on any continent, and the only state that is made up entirely of islands. Hawaii's nickname is the "Aloha State." Located in the Pacific Ocean, the island spreads over 1,500 miles and its population reaches a little over one million. The capital of Hawaii is Honolulu, also known as the largest city. There are several volcanoes in Hawaii, both active and inactive. One of the world's largest volcanoes, the Mauna Loa, is located on one of the islands.

Since 1972, tourism has played a big role in Hawaii's industry. The island of Oahu houses the Pearl Harbor Naval Base. When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, it caused the United States to go into World War II. The Pearl Harbor Museum provides tours for tourists and their families. Tourists love the island of Hawaii because of its warm weather year round. During the summer months Hawaii reaches temperatures up to eighty degrees. During the winter months the temperature may dip into the low sixties during the night. Tourist will also enjoy the hula dancing, exotic flowers, beautiful beaches, and breathtaking mountains and cliffs. The international Surfing Championship is also held at the Oahu Island.
