It depends on your personality type. I hate laziness/waiting, don't like doing "nothing", etc. For me, Hawaii just wasn't the place to be. Even Honolulu is maybe a 0.5 out of 10 on the "exciting" scale.
On the other hand, if you like lounging around all day, hanging out at the beach, and don't mind everybody always being 30+ minutes late (this includes to business meetings) - you'll love Hawaii.
Certain personality types do well there, others do not - as always - personal preference! Just watch out for plate lunches. They don't taste that great, and i gained 30 lbs over the period of 3 years simply because that's all there was to eat around my office building.
Better not let this get off topic, feel free to PM about Hawaii related stuff. Don't want to miss out on people's collections here!
