Hawaii is the 50th and latest state to have united the United States of America, with received statehood on August 21, 1959. Hawaii is the only U.S. state located in Oceania and the only one composed entirely of islands. It’s the northernmost island group in Polynesia, inhabiting all the archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean. Hawaii is the sole U.S. state located outside North America.

The state encompasses nearly the whole volcanic Hawaiian archipelago, which includes hundreds of islands spread across 1,500 miles (2,400 km). At the end of the archipelago, the eight principal islands are–in sequence from northwest to southeast: Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Maui, and also the Island of Hawaiʻi. The last is the biggest island in the category; it is often called the « Big Island » or « Hawaiʻi Island » to avoid confusion with the state or archipelago. The archipelago is physiographically and ethnologically part of the Polynesian subregion of Oceania.

Hawaii’s diverse natural scenery, warm tropical climate, abundance of public beaches, oceanic environment, and active volcanoes make it a very favorite destination for tourists, surfers, biologists, and volcanologists. Because of its central location in the Pacific and 19th-century labour migration, Hawaii’s culture is strongly influenced by North American and Asian cultures, in addition to its indigenous Hawaiian culture. Hawaii has more than a million permanent residents, together with many visitors and U.S. military employees. Its capital is Honolulu on the island of Oʻahu.

Hawaii is the 8th-smallest and also the 11th-least populous, but the 13th-most densely populated of those 50 U.S. states. It is the only state with an plurality. The country’s coastline is approximately 750 miles (1,210 km) long, the fourth longest in the U.S. following the coastlines of Alaska, Florida, and California.

The aboriginal culture of Hawaii is Polynesian. Hawaii represents the northernmost extension of the huge Polynesian Triangle of the south and central Pacific Ocean. While traditional Hawaiian culture remains as vestiges in modern Hawaiian society, there are re-enactments of the ceremonies and traditions throughout the islands. Some of these cultural influences, including the popularity (in greatly modified form) of lūʻau and hula, are strong enough to affect the wider United States.

Tourism is an important part of the Hawaiian economy. In 2003, in accordance with state government data, there were more than 6.4 million people, with expenses of over $10 billion, into the Hawaiian Islands. Due to the mild year-round weather, tourist journey is a favorite during the year. The major holidays are the most popular occasions for outsiders to see, especially in the winter season. Substantial quantities of Japanese tourists still go to the islands but have been surpassed by Chinese and Koreans because of the collapse of the value of the Yen and the weak Japanese market. The typical Japanese remains only 5 days while other Asians spend over 9.5 days and spend 25% longer.

Hawaii hosts numerous cultural events. The annual Merrie Monarch Festival is an international Hula contest. The Hawaii International Film Festival is the premier film festival for Pacific rim theatre. Honolulu hosts the nation’s long-running LGBT film festival, the Rainbow Film Festival.
