Blog 3 Why the Big Island II
Having never been anywhere other than Waikiki in Honolulu (and me only twice for one night each on business travel to Asia), we thought all of Hawaii was only about tourism – sort of a larger Cancun. We were surprised and pleased by the lack of commercialism on most of the Big Island. There is plenty of tourism and great hotels, but also agricultural areas and some rural areas so remote that you would swear you were in West Virginia. It is a great mixture of people, ages, life styles and all surrounded by beautiful scenery and fantastic weather.
