Significant parks and sites in the state of Hawaii, as designated by the National Park Service (NPS), were recently recognized by the Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) for their role in generating tourism.

“The National Park Service overseas eight parks and sites throughout the Hawaiian Islands, which welcomed nearly five million visitors and generated US$312-million in economic benefits to the state last year,” said Mike McCartney, president and CEO of the HTA. “They not only help to preserve the natural beauty of the destination, but help to perpetuate and promote the people, place and culture that make Hawaii a unique and special place to live and visit.”

Winners included the Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on Hawaii Island; Haleakala National Park on Maui and the Valor in the Pacific National Monument at Pearl Harbor on Oahu, amongst others.
