State of Hawaii turns 50.
Today's United States gets its crown jewel when Dwight D. Eisenhower joins Hawaii as the fiftieth state to join the Union. It was also the order placed by the US government for an US flagship with 50 satellites in offset rows: five six-star and four five-star series. Hawaii' s first known colonists were Polish travellers who came sometime in the eight centuries.
At the beginning of the eighteenth millennium, US merchants came to Hawaii to use the islands' highly prized Chinese sand-wood. During the 1830' the sucrose industrial was launched in Hawaii and in the middle of the 19. c. started. U.S. missions and growers caused great changes in Hawaii's politics, culture, economy, and religion.
1840 saw the establishment of a constitutionally constituted empire that deprived the Haiwaiian sovereign of much of his power. A group of expatriate and sugar-growing Americans, backed by a US Navy department, dismissed Queen Liliuokalani, the last ruling sovereign of Hawaii, in 1893. A year later, the Republic of Hawaii was founded as a US protection agency with Sanford B. Dole, native of Hawaii, as chairman.
Not until 1898, after the use of the Pearl Harbor marine bases during the Spanish-American War, did the military importance of Hawaii become clear and official accession was permitted. Hawaii was divided into a US-shaped area two years later.
Hawaii became an integral part of US nationhood during World War II after the surprising December 1941 Japan invaded Pearl Harbor. By March 1959, the U.S. administration authorized Hawaii's sovereignty, and in June the large vote of the nation of Hawaii for admission to the United States.
Hawaii was declared the fiftieth state two month later.
More than 7 million Hawaiians come to Hawaii every year to stay on the sand beach, discover the rainforest and experience everything the state has to offer. Hawaii is a great place to be. Hawaii, made up of volcanos in the Pacific Ocean, consists of more than 100 small Pacific Ocean islets, but is best known for its eight major islets.
Also known as the Great Island, Hawaii is not only the biggest of the hawaiian isles, but also the biggest island of the United States. Big Island is 4,028 sq m and is the third most frequented by visitors every year. If you visit the Big Island you will see the Maunaloa Volcano, the Kau Dessert, the Puna Fern Forest, the Hawaii Folcanoes National Park and Kealakekua Bay.
With 727 sq. m., Maui is the second biggest island. Famous for its mountains and valley, Maui is often referred to as a valley island. During your visit to Maui, take the opportunity to visit the holiday areas of Kaanapali and Wailea as well as Haleakala, the biggest resting volcanic craters in the canyon.
By far the most favourite tourist attraction, Oahu attracts almost twice as many people every year as Maui. It' the third biggest island in Hawaii, with 597 sq m. Kauai is the 4th biggest island in Hawaii with 562 sq. m. and the 4th most loved of the tourist area.
Kauai's epithet is the "Garden Island" because of its tropic climates, falls and luxuriant bush. The Molokai is the fifth biggest island in Hawaii and has an area of 260 sq. m.. The island of Lanai was once called "Pineapple Island" because almost the whole island was once a pine orchard. Today Lanai is the fifth most frequented island and has an area of 140 sq. m..
The biggest part of the island is still unbuilt, although there are several resort and course facilities. It is unlikely that you will be able to see Niihau, the 7th biggest island, during your journey to Hawaii, as it is private property. The Niihau has an area of 69 sq. m. and is used for cattle breeding.
Kahoolawe, the smallest of the eight large island is only 45 sq. m. and another island you probably won't see on your trips.
