Being a group of islands, Hawaii does not share land boundaries with any other state. While it is commonly (but mistakenly) believed that the state of California is closest to Hawaii , it is in fact the state of Alaska that is closest to Hawaii .
It is FALSE. The state of Hawaii is about 2400 mi. (4000 km) from California and about 4000 mi.
Generally, the best weather in Hawaii can be experienced in June, July and September. This is when travelers can expect the least amount of rainfall along with warm water temperatures. However, Hawaii has pretty great weather year-round (after all, the Aloha State experiences only two seasons).
It’s no surprise that West Coast states offer the cheapest flights to Hawaii , with California, Washington, and Oregon leading the way. In fact, most of the top 10 cities are in California (with two notable exceptions: Bellingham, Washington, and Salt Lake City, Utah. Lucky you!)
While on average a flight from California to Hawaii is generally $703, our data shows the cheapest flight currently is $179. When looking at the most popular route, (Los Angeles – Honolulu), you can expect to pay $118 for that flight .
The closest mainland state to Hawaii is California. Measuring the distance to the centers of places in California, I find that Honomu is 2287 miles from the small city of Point Arena in Mendocino County, and 2318 miles from the large city of San Francisco .
RESTRICTED OR PROHIBITED ITEMS: Pineapple and bromeliad plants and fruits. Passion fruit plants and seeds. Cruciferous root vegetables (radish, turnip, daikon, horseradish, rutabaga) Corn on the cob. Citrus and pulpy fruits from Florida & Puerto Rico. Taro and dasheen. Coconuts.
As others have stated, the nearest continental land is the southern tip of the Alaskan peninsula, which is 3,156km (1,961 miles) from the nearest island (Pearl and Hermes Atoll), or 3,640km (2,262 miles) from the nearest inhabited island (Kauai).
U.S. citizens flying between another state and Alaska do not need a passport . However, those driving through Canada or traveling on a ferry or cruise ship with stops in Canada are required to carry one. All non U.S. citizens will need a passport and possibly other documents to enter.
You can drive to Alaska from anywhere in the United States, including California . The road leading to Alaska is called the Alaska Highway or Alaska -Canada Highway (Alcan), and it officially begins in Dawson Creek, British Columbia in Canada.
