July 7, 2007

In this episode of the Window Seat Podcast, sponsored by Travelocity, host Amy Ziff takes off to Hawaii.

There are eight islands that make up the Aloha State: Hawaii (also known as "The Big Island"), Oahu, Kauai, Maui -- and the lesser-known islands of Molokai, Lanai, Niihau and Kahoolawe. In this episode we're focusing on the four most popular islands.

You'll learn about the early history of the Big Island, get swept away on a romantic trip to Kauai, hear from a travel expert about the best kid-friendly spots to check out wildlife on Maui, and get a native's tour of Oahu beaches.
