Ok, Hawaii is pretty dope.
Prior to visiting, I was always told that Hawaii is gorgeous, but super touristy and expensive. EVERYONE has an opinion on what time of year to go and for how long. Forget what they say and just go - I went in April for 5 days and it was amazing. It’s a 5 hour flight from the Bay and totally worth visiting if you’re on the West Coast. It is GORGEOUS and the poke is LIT.
