Hawaii's nickname tells you all you need to know: It's the "Aloha State," giving a warm welcome to families moving in and visitors alike. A series of beautiful and lush tropical islands in the Pacific Ocean make up the state, far away from the U.S. mainland. Living in Hawaii means you can spend free time sunbathing on beautiful beaches, surfing, hiking through a rainforest or participating in Hawaiian culture.
