7 reasons why now is the perfect time to visit Hawaii

It’s January and 80-something degrees

Geography doesn’t lie: Hawaii is officially the most comfortable place in the USA this time of year.

It’s nice and warm, with cooling tradewinds and the occasional passing rain shower. Farmers markets are open and the waves are up, and the beaches are perfect for soaking up the sun.

You’ll find some incredible deals

Hawaii’s visitor numbers are down 74% from last year, which has taken an unfortunate toll on our economy.

The silver lining, however, is that many businesses are offering great deals to entice customers — including airlines, certain accommodations, restaurants, and more.

Keep your eyes open for those $129 one-way airfares from the West Coast!

Crowds are smaller

If crowds aren’t your thing, then consider that Hawaii is virtually free of crowds at this time.

Yes, social distancing is the norm, but you’ll notice way less traffic on the road, shorter lines at the store, and fewer people at the beach and on the hiking trails. Not so much with surfing, though — the same old etiquette applies.

Your business is appreciated

The pandemic has unleashed havoc on the many local businesses, with many suffering and closing. Spending money here to support these small business helps put money back into the economy to help the locals.

Because you can work here now

Remote work is now a thing, and it’s probably going to be for the foreseeable future. So why not WFH — Work From Hawaii?

Companies are either requiring workers to work from home during this unprecedented time, or they’re switching to a permanent remote work.

Depending if it’s Daylight Savings Time or not, the time difference between Hawaii and West Coast is a manageable 2 to 3 hours. You can basically start work at 6am and be done around 2pm.

Maybe you were supposed to come here anyway

There’s a reason why people come to Hawaii — to relax, to heal, to rejuvenate and, in some ways, get in touch with themselves.

If you were already planning to come here, or at least thinking about it — maybe now’s the time to do it.

Whatcha you waiting for?

It’s safe here

The state of Hawaii is doing its best to keep Hawaii’s covid numbers low, and it’s the efforts have been pretty successful.

In fact, Hawaii has the lowest rates of covid per capita in the USA. Because of this, we continue to enjoy a relatively “normal” life, with some sensible restrictions.

That being said, please keep in mind that the Hawaii Safe Travels program requires a negative covid test taken within 72 hours of arrival from a trusted travel partner. Please don’t come to Hawaii if you’re feeling sick, think you have covid, or have been around anyone who has tested positive for covid.
