Moving to Hawaii

  

About Hawaii - Hawaii constitutes the 50th state of the hawaiiUnited States and is situated 2,300 miles (3,700 km) from the mainland. Hawaii is the only U.S. state that is completely surrounded by water. It is one of two states that do not share a border with another U.S. state (Alaska being the other). It is the southernmost state of the United States.

All of the Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanoes arising from the sea floor through a vent described in geological theory as a hotspot. The theory maintains that as the tectonic plate beneath much of the Pacific Ocean moves in a northwesterly direction, the hot spot remains stationary, slowly creating new volcanoes.
