About Hawaii State

Located in central Pacific Ocean, Hawaii is the southernmost state in the United States. Located in the Oceania, Hawaii is the only state with Asian plurality and archipelago. Nicknamed 'The Aloha State', it is the 8th smallest state by area in the US.

History of Hawaii

The first settlers in Hawaii were the Polynesians of the Marquesas Islands. These settlers arrived on the islands some 1500 years ago, sailing for over 2000 miles in canoes. The second wave of immigrants came in the 11th century from Tahiti. The first recorded European contact was made in 1778, when Captain James Cook set foot on the Waimea Bay in Kauai and named the islands "Sandwich Islands".

In 1791, Kamehameha - a North Kobala native - united all the major islands and created one royal kingdom in 1810. The American colonists eventually overthrew the kingdom in 1898. During the 20th century, with the boom of the islands' sugar and pineapple economy, immigrants from all over the world began arriving. It was on August 21, 1959 that Hawaii became the youngest and 50th state of the US.

Geography of Hawaii

The archipelago is roughly 2,000 miles (3,200 km) southwest of the West Coast of the US. Out of its eight main islands – Hawaii, Maui, Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe – seven are permanently inhabited. The main island of Hawaii is also known as the Big Island. There are however, hundreds of islands in Hawaii, which are spread across 1,500 miles.

Stretching for 750 miles, the state's coastline is the fourth longest in the US. At 4025 meters, Mauna Kea is the highest mountain in the state.
