Going to Hawaii is a trip of a lifetime,  truly there is no other place like it. If you are used to living in a colder climate Hawaii is the perfect trip for you to soak up some sun and take in some amazing sights, no matter which island you are on.  To help you out with your trip we have prepared for you a Hawaii Packing List. The nice thing with this Hawaii trip list is that you can go lighter on the heavy clothing (which matters a lot when you live in a cold climate). 

It’s best to take this list and laminate it with some self-laminating sheets. 

This list is the same one we used when we went to Maui last summer, when we go again we will just pull this list out and start packing knowing that we have everything we need. 

Now you can too!

Here are the items we like to cover on our Hawaii packing list. It’s pretty exhaustive but there is always room for more, suitcase room speaking of course.
