When to Go: Fall

Why: No matter what time of year you visit, Hawaii seems to have perfect weather. Try to experience it in the fall, when families are done with their summer vacations and the snowbird rush from the West Coast has yet to begin. The Aloha Festivals -- cultural celebrations held on each island that include parades, block parties and special events such as canoe races -- start in September and run through mid-October. This is one of the best times to enjoy Hawaii as a local, not a tourist.
