Hawaii is the newest of the 50 states of the United States, and the only state made up entirely of islands. It is the northernmost island group in Polynesia, occupying most of the archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean, southwest of the continental United States, southeast of Japan, and northeast of Australia. Because it is located in the center of the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii has many North American and influences from Asia, with its own native culture active. Its capital is Honolulu on the island of Oahu.


Sure Kauai’s out-of-the-way. Perched on the northern-most edge of the inhabited Hawaiian Islands, it appears not much more than a 5-million-year-old speck floating in the great Pacific Ocean. It’s a perfect get away, but no need to leave your cell phone, your laptop or your hand-held wireless devices behind.

Tempted to buy property on Kauai? Realtors who understand the idiosyncrasies of the local market and can walk you through a deal are readily available. And if you do run into a snag, Kauai is conveniently connected with the financial and medical centers of Honolulu. Just because postal carriers wear shorts and bankers come to work in aloha shirts without ties doesn’t mean you’ll be cut off from the world on Kauai. Of course, you can be if you want.
