Planning the Perfect Time for a Hawaiian Vacation (Infograph)

I came across a terrific infograph on my friend Derek’s site, The Points Guide, the other day highlighting some of the trends surrounding travel to our favorite state, Hawaii, from FlipKey, a division of TripAdvisor.

I am partial to the lovely State of Hawaii. I do not know exactly what it is about the fresh ocean air, gorgeous beaches, and delectable tropical cuisine, but I was captured by Hawaii during my first visit in 2006. Then, when I was fortunate to be able to experience Hawaii’s grandeur with my wife, boys, and in-laws, I was forever changed, and feel a deep connection with the islands. This coming from a born and raised Cleveland boy.

As I listen to Jimmy Buffet’s Radio Margaritaville on Sirius/XM, I am taken back to a Hawaiian island. I figured now would be as good a time as any to look back at what we have so far in regards to our Hawaiian experiences.
