The 50th state is easily one of America's finest and most enticing adventure destinations. White, red, black, or green beaches, lush rainforests and dramatic cliff walls, incredible surf in water that fluctuates between averages of 77 and 82 degrees, mountains that exceed 13,000 feet, and a vibrant Hawaiian culture are just a few of the many reasons to make a stay in these islands a top priority. Of course, it is a land of resorts as well; plenty of visitors hit the beaches outside of their hotels for a week or so and call it a vacation. We all can use that kind of time now and again, but these islands are so much more than mai tais and kitschy tourist stops. The richness of these islands really shines for those who are willing to seek out the hikes, the historical parks, the hidden shorelines, and the geologic wonders each island contains. The islands are a haven for an active exploration, and anyone who delves deeply into the human and geologic history of this place will be amply rewarded.

In case you really needed any convincing, we've assembled a slideshow of 25 photos that just might entice you to book that plane ticket soon. Whether you choose Kauai, O'ahu, Maui, or the Big Island, you can't go wrong...the secret is a commitment to return and explore further!
