Hawaii

The 50th and final state admitted into the Union, Hawaii is a series of islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It is the furthest south of any U.S. state, further south than the Florida Keys, on roughly the same latitude as Cuba. The first human arrivals to the islands appeared more than 1,000 years ago, having island hopped from Indonesia and Southeast Asia. Polynesians brought pigs and chickens. In the 18th Century, Captain Cook brought cows, goats, and horses. Edible plants like taro, sweet potato, coconut, pineapples, and sugarcane were all brought to the islands to be cultivated in the rich volcanic soils. Today, Hawaii is known for growing coffee, macadamia nuts (originally from Australia), sweet Maui onions, pineapples, Ahi tuna, and sugar cane. But perhaps Hawaii is best known for the luau, a traditional feast that centers on the roasted pig, which is buried in the ground and cooked slowly over white-hot stones.
