There may be a volcano erupting on the big island, but that doesn’t mean Hawaii is closed for business.  In fact, most of Big Island is still safe to visit and remains unaffected by the explosion let alone all the other Hawaiian Islands that are left completely unaffected.

Hawaii is an amazing destination to visit and there are so many things to do.  Here are a few things to do to make your trip completely unforgettable.
