Top 10 national and state parks in Hawaii

Top 10 national and state parks in Hawaii | Motorhome Madness | Scoop.it
Every magical thing you’ve ever heard about Hawaii is true: these eight volcanic islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean are a tropical paradise, a geological marvel and an ecological treasure.
Marianne Riddile's insight:
We have been out to the islands several times. A doors-off helicopter tour of Kauai was the best way to see Waimea Canyon and the Na Pali coast. On the Big Island, we flew over the active volcano in helicopter and saw the hot lava bubbling. Just know the risks involved. Hiking the coast can be dangerous-waves can come and sweep you out or throw you on the sharp rocks. Motorhoming is non-exisistent on the islands--tent camping or staying in a hotel is the way to go.
