Why put off paradise? After years of unfulfilled travel resolutions, it’s finally time to take the vacation you deserve. Say goodbye to blustery winter weather and aloha to the sun-soaked sandy beaches of the Pineapple State. Here are three reasons to visit Hawaii in 2019.

There’s a direct flight from Boston to Hawaii.

Long layovers are a thing of the past. Beginning in April, you can now take a nonstop flight from Logan Airport to Honolulu with Hawaiian Airlines. Enjoy the 5,095-mile journey (the longest domestic flight route in the United States) with celebratory discounted rates throughout the cabin. Fly first class and receive personal tablets stocked with movie and show selections, a sampling of Lolii natural skincare products, tasty cuisine from Executive Chef Lee Anne Wong, and lie-flat seats, reclining full-length at 76 inches and upholstered in Poltrana Frau leather. With these luxurious features, your 11-hour trip will fly by—no pun intended.

You can explore all six beautiful main islands.

Hike past sacred sites at the lush Garden Isle of Kauai, or take a romantic retreat under the waterfalls of Maui. Hang ten and surf the waves at the gathering place of Oahu, or grab a bite to eat on the friendly isle of Molokai. Dive with dolphins in Lanai or experience the gorgeous Hawaii Island. Wherever you go, each island offers its own rich history and personality.

There’s fun for the whole family.

Ohana means family, and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten—especially when it comes to awesome activities. Attend a luau and learn to dance the hula or zip line along the coast. From snorkeling to scuba lessons, whale watching, and exploring volcanoes, there’s no shortage of family-friendly ideas that will keep the kids busy (and happy) all day long.
