Hawaii is known for many things; it’s gorgeous sunsets, majestic rainbows, enchanting rain forests and steaming volcanoes just to name a few. There is also a love of culture among the native Hawaiians living there. One of the lesser known details of Hawaii might be its abundance of coffee farms with Kona coffee being one of the rarer commodities.
A visit to Hawaii can be as typical or as diverse as you want it to be. You can make your way through the rainforest or visit a coffee plantation. Renting a house in an off-the-beaten path part of Hawaii is a great way to experience the culture better. If you’ve never been to Hawaii or are just planning to revisit sometime soon, here are a few ideas of what happens in Hawaii.
In the late 1970s, the Iron Man Triathlon was conceived. It was a way to combine the most rigorous endurance races in categories of swimming, running, and bicycling. Recently in October, thousands of athletes competed in the triathlon with hundreds of thousands in prize money awarded.
