Even though Hawaii is part of the United States, it feels like a whole other world. Each of the eight islands offers it's own personality and the Native Hawaiians who live here have played countless important roles in shaping the state into what it is today.
The six major islands of Hawaii include: Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Molokai and Lanai.
There are currently three active volcanoes in Hawaii: Loihi, Maunaloa and Kilauea
The state is the former seat of a royal kingdom and home to the only royal palace on American soil.
