the big island is overrated but I have many friends who went to outer islands and absolutely loved it. My experience on the big island is that we are haolies (white devils) and can be treated any way they want. Everything is quite expensive but the scenery and city is still absolutely beautiful even if the people don't realize they are US citizens.

You bring up a good point. Hawaii's local populace is a tight group, and unfortunately there are some groups that harbor resentment towards "mainland'ers". However, this definitely isn't all Hawaiians; on the contrary, it's a very small number of them.

I'm good friends with a lot of locals here, even though I'm in the military, and none of them feel that way. They're actually a lot cooler than a lot of the mainland'ers that I know.

The key to coming to Hawaii is to be respectful of the locals. This is their land, their home and has been for far before Americans got here. Just be polite, and don't act like you own their island, and you'll be just fine

Maui

Maui alone is worth the visit. It is simply a spectacular place to visit. Be sure to mountain bike down a volcano while you're there.

#1 reason, because I am here! Other than that I would say that the beaches and views and atmosphere is great.

I got married in Hawai'i. It was my wife's idea. I knew there was a reason I married her.


Awww....

Seriously, though, it was awesome. If you go, go for two weeks; 9 days was definitely not enough time to do everything we wanted to do.
