18. Hawaiian food is not pizza with pineapple and ham on top
Try lau lau, poi, and kalua pork from real Hawaiian food restaurants.
19. Rash guards are not T-shirts
They’re supposed to be taken off before leaving the beach. If you’re in a store in a rash guard, someone is definitely laughing at you.
20. Pineapples and coffee steal the spotlight, but marijuana is one of Hawaii’s biggest cash crops
The Big Island has produced more than the other islands for decades and in 2016 dispensaries will open up on each island.
21. Elvis and Don Ho aren’t Hawaiian music
Forget "Tiny Bubbles" and Blue Hawaii and listen to some John Cruz, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, or Ledward Ka’apana.
