Travel agents have long known that America’s biggest tourist draw is Hawaii, home to the iconic Kīlauea volcano and the nation’s capital.
But now, according to a new report from travel and tourism advisory firm Travel and Tourism, there are more than a dozen more places to visit in the Hawaiian Islands than ever before.
According to the report, “The U.S. has seen a dramatic increase in visitation to the Hawaiian islands, with nearly 3.6 million visitors visiting in 2017 alone.
But despite this growth, tourism to the islands continues to be hampered by the high cost of airfare and other travel costs.
Census Bureau reports that airfare for a one-way trip from the U.K. to the U of A, for example, costs $8,624.
Hawaii has the second highest airfares for travelers in the world at $19,000 per person.”
While there are plenty of good things to do in Hawaii—especially for those who can’t afford a round-trip flight—there are some other places that offer a unique experience that just can’t be found anywhere else.
