Celebrating the New Year in Paradise
Reasons For Spending the New Year in Paradise
Interested in celebrating the New Year in the Aloha State of Hawaii? The cost of traveling during the Holiday season is always higher regardless of your destination. But here are some reasons why welcoming the New Year in paradise may be worth the extra costs.
In our opinion, there is probably no other state in America that celebrates the New Year like Hawaii. This is because of the influences of the many Asia-Pacific cultures in the Hawaiian Islands. Where else in American do you welcome the New Year’s with lunches and dinners of sashimi (sliced raw fresh fish), manju (rice cakes with sweet bean filling), Portuguese bean soup and many more.
Do you have friends or relatives who live in Hawaii. If so, hopefully, you’ll be fortunate to be invited to a New Year’s Eve or New Year’s party. This is where you’ll be able to enjoy foods from all around the Asia-Pacific Basin as well as from Europe and the Caribbean. Plus, there is still a local tradition of using fireworks to launch the New Year. As a result, you’ll get to see some nice fireworks shows whether they are done professionally or from someone’s backyard.
If you’re coming from a cold climate, there’s another good reason to come to Hawaii during the New Year. And this is, you won’t be suffering freezing weather, driving on frozen roads or shoveling snow in the Aloha State.
So we hope that you consider visiting the Hawaiian Islands for the New Year, and if you do, consider our wide selection of Hawaii airfare packages offered on our Air to Hawaii website.
