Hawaii is also the home of the tallest mountain from the ocean floor to the peak – Mauna Kea with 33,476ft and the most active volcano in the world – Kilauea. However, the volcano itself doesn’t present any danger because its eruptions are not violent and only consist of lava constantly flowing from the volcano.

Speaking about unique things – Hawaii is the only place in the U.S. where residential establishment for royalty is found — the Iolani Palace.
