Hawai’i is unique in many ways—it’s the only U.S. state outside North America, the only state that’s an archipelago, and the only state in the tropics. Hawai’i’s coastlines and natural beauty draw millions of visitors to the state every year, helping to make leisure and hospitality one of the state’s strongest industries.
