Hawaii, the 50th state to join the United States of America, is the only state consisting of just islands. The islands were formed by volcanic activity, and to this day, volcanos continue to reshape the geography of Hawaii. Over 750 miles of rugged coastline, lush rain forests, and consistently warm temperatures attract over 8 million tourists a year to the Hawaiian Islands, located over 2,000 miles from the mainland US.
