National Geographic : 1938 Nov
d__ ^^^^^H^^^9^^ \/^^ -ji~i~j^^^ij^^^^^^^^ There is a lilt to life in Hawaii which no one has ever been able to express. You can do a fair job of trying, because the most colorful phrases spring naturally to mind at mention of these vital isles. Yet something, inevitably, is lacking in the result... the character and spirit of this sunny archipelago are too elusive to be trapped in words. But little is lacking in Hawaii,herself.What do you seek? Scenic beauty flashing with sub-tropical color? A sports calendar almost confusing in lavish variety? Climate approaching perfection? A land where you can be romantic or practical, dreamy or vigorous ... where you can go delightfully primitive or dashingly modern according to your mood? And where you can count on a welcome born in the heart, with a "follow-through" that will always hold you willingly captive? Hawaii awaits with every provision for your pleasure. Hotels world-famed for year-round gaiety...smart shops with the latest in seashore modes that make it unnecessary and unwise to assemble your wardrobe until you arrive... highways, seaways and airways for exploring the isles of Kauai, Oahu, Maui and Hawaii. Sail on a palatial liner from Los Angeles, San Francisco or Vancouver, B. C.... or fly in less than a day on a giant Clipper.
