I hear there's a lot of alcohol and drug abuse there among the residents. This, from a colleague who was born and raised there and wanted out.

Great idea for a series by the way! I can't wait to see everyone's opinions.
If I had been asked this question when I was younger, I would've said positive, but now I think otherwise. What first comes to mind?

Dream vacation: P
Expensive to live there and to vacation: N
Soul surfer, a great movie!: P
The natives: N
Very liberal politics: N
Pearl Harbor: P
Danger from Tsunamis and hurricanes: N

I just wanted to add that I would eventually like to travel to every state, no matter what I think of it.

The natives are a negative? We take over their islands and they're the negative? Wow. That's some ignorance there.

I have been there many times, the construction is everywhere. I love the local Hawaiians, spent time with them, but, it is changing, not for the better.
Still beautiful and favorable...

I said positive because it's supposedly beautiful. However, the price of living there is exorbitantly high.

What comes to mind is dream vacation. My opinion of it is positive with some negatives, the positive its one of the most beautiful places on earth. The negative is I have a nagging feeling the people who live there are really up tight and snooty, don't ask me why i just feel that way.
