Hawaii became the 50th state on August 21, 1959. Visit the islands online with this virtual field trip.

After reading the introduction, select the island to visit by clicking on one of the images on the left had side of the page. Through images and text tour the islands of: 

  • Oahu
  • Big Island
  • Maui
  • Kahoolawe
  • Molokai
  • Kauai

Each island has a choice of tours available – some use clickable maps to reach a destination, others have downloadable movies of aerial views. When the tour opens, read through the text and click on the images for larger views. When finished with these tours, select the “Go to VH Home Page” and locate the “NEW radar images” in the right hand upper paragraph to see radar images of the islands.

We did find that this site appears to be an older website that may not be maintained and a few of the links did not work, but there is still plenty of great information and images available making it worth a look-see.
