Five reasons to hang ten in Hawaii

Every four years the Spring Grove Area High School marching band (The Blue Crϋe) takes “the ultimate field trip” to Hawaii.
I was fortunate enough to be able to go on the trip in January. After spending a fun-filled, memorable nine days in paradise, this is what I concluded: The 5 Best Things about Hawaii.
1. The full-of-love, laid-back Hawaiian culture. Native Hawaiians are happy to share their beautiful islands. Tourists are made to feel welcome and to enjoy their visit to the fullest. “Aloha cousin! Hang Loose!”
2. Warm weather year-round. The average temperature throughout the year ranges from 78 to 85 degrees. Very ideal!
3. Mouth-watering, fresh pineapple. Hawaii is the largest producer of domestically-consumed pineapples resulting in tons of the delectable fruit to eat all over the islands.
4. The sparkling blue ocean. No other beach in the United States can compare with the pristine tropical waters of Hawaii.
5. Lots of inexpensive, gorgeous jewelry for sale. There are many markets, stands and shops selling jewelry throughout the islands. Much of it is handcrafted and unique to Hawaii, making beautiful souvenirs.

    Why does your school spend money for your band to go to Hawaii? Shouldn’t the money go towards, like, learning? This was the kind of thing I used to rant about when I was on the Teen Takeover staff.

    The trip to Hawaii was very educational in itself. Not only did we provide much- appreciated entertainment to the locals, we also learned A LOT over the 10 days we spent there about the native land and culture of a beautiful part of the country that not many people would’ve gotten to experience if it weren’t for this school trip.
