Share Your Memories

Do you remember tourism during Hawaii's early days of statehood? How was it different then, compared to now?

In 1959, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States. As Hawaii approaches 50 years of statehood, TravelAge West is looking for longtime agents and tour operators to share their experiences with selling travel to Hawaii for an upcoming cover story that looks back on the islands' 50 years of state history. Has selling Hawaii changed over the decades, as far back as you can remember? Were you selling Hawaii even before it became a state or just after? Your story may be published in our May 11th cover story or on our Web site.

For more information about Hawaii's long and varied history, visit the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau site.
