Fodor’s Choice Hawai’i

Snorkeling, surfing, diving, kayaking, mountain climbing, swimming — Hawai’i is paradise for the adventure traveler. It’s paradise, too, for recumbent types who want nothing more than to plop down on a beach with a stiff drink. It’s also paradise for bird watchers, botanists, entomologists, hula dancers, star-gazers, ichthyologists and, well, just about everybody on the planet.

And why not? Who wouldn’t love a place where the average daily temperature is 75 degrees?
