Last week I went on vacation to Honolulu Hawaii a beautiful island paradise. We went on many hikes through muddy jungle terrain; one of my favorite hikes was a hike to a waterfall going down the cliff side through small ponds I took a sip from the water and got soaked in the progress it was really tasty water. Also I went to a place called the Polynesian Cultural Center learned about the many different islanders that occupy other pacific islands; saw a canoe show depicting the stories of the islands and how they were formed. Finally I got to tour a massive battleship called The USS Missouri where japan surrender to america ending WW2. Hawaii was an amazing place to visit and can’t wait to go back again.

Hello my name is Keri I went to Hawaii for 6 days. It was really green and tropical. I went to one Island it was called Oahu. I chose that Island because it had a lot of activities to do. I went to a couple of different places. I went snorkeling at Hanauma Bay and went on a helicopter ride too. On the helicopter ride we flew over the island. We flew over the Dole plantation and the world’s largest maze, too. We also saw a waterfall on the helicopter ride. Also, we went to the famous Waikiki beach. Pearl Harbor was neat and we saw the Arizona Memorial. We went to the Cemetery of the Pacific were World War 2 veterans were buried. We went to see the state capitol too. Also, we went to a luau and a dinner cruise too. For the dinner cruise we went on a Friday because if you go on a Friday you would see Fireworks where they set them off at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. It was really beautiful scenery and breathtaking beaches.
