Surely the cost of living is higher, but it is worth it if you factor in all the benefits mentioned above. There are plenty of job resources if you are into tourism industry. Not to mention it is the only state still having Union Jack in its state flag.

Too crowded and I don't think it snows there.

In answer to your original question.... yes... I live here in Hawaii. I'm on Maui though. Finding a job was bloody hard but now that I have one, life's pretty good. Things are F$£king expensive and the education system beggars belief but it has its good sides too. Mandatory employee healthcare provisions for one... hitting the water everyday after work, for another!!

No, Texas here Maui's the best. I love Kaanapali. If there is a heaven, and I get to go, please let it be on Maui. If you haven't already, eat dinner at Chez Paul (down the highway) and Longhi's in Lahaina, i encourage you to. And, if you do, please post back with every detail.

If I was young, brave, motherless and money was no object, I'd be there now. Keep us posted!

It does snow, but you have to go way up to the top of some mountain, forget its name though.



As for me, I'd love to live in Hawaii, but that damn 3,000 or so miles to California and no real option other then flying, gets too exspensive to leave the island.

Although I might try it out someday, but food costs and such seem a tad high.

Is it Mt. Haleakala (I know that's misspelled)? Yeah, and $8 for a gallon of milk seems a bit steep. Then again, it IS paradise... always a price.
