Yes, I concur. Hawaii is the best place to live. Why snow when you can have the beach and sun. It’s a no brainer.

I read somewhere that living in Hawaii adds 7 years to your life compared to living in other U.S. cities. I can’t remember the reference or how true the statement was, but this poll, and my experience of living here vs the mainland (when I was in college) certainly says something about healthy living in Hawaii.

It’s all about access to oxygen. We’re at sea level, and there’s a ton of plant life. The more O2 we get, the healthier we are (and the more we offset our steady diets of musubi and malasadas!)
