TIME TO STOP “JUST PLANNING” A TRIP TO HAWAII (May, 1934)

When I think of a vacation in Hawaii, tuxedos are not the first thing that comes to mind.

TIME TO STOP “JUST PLANNING” A TRIP TO HAWAII

Along with thousands of others, you may be planning to go to Hawaii some day. It would be only natural. This island paradise has won a permanent place in the affections of the world. Somehow it sums up rest, recreation, rejuvenation.

What may at first have seemed extravagant overstatement concerning these islands of eternal May has proved a matter of statistics. Even the most prose-minded visitors to Hawaii have grown lyrical in singing its praises and started others planning to go.

But now you can stop “just planning”, for the time of going and the cost of getting there are down to practical figures. A visit to Hawaii may now be included easily in the usual vacation period. Fast steamer and train schedules make it possible. It’s less than five days to Honolulu from Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Vancouver! The cost one way from the Pacific Coast as low as $110. . . First Class! $75.. . Cabin Class! Furthermore, rail fares are reduced and Pullman surcharges are abolished … a combination of inducements that urge “go now”

No more beautiful, more popular season than summer to enjoy Hawaii Gentle trade breezes to cool you, a mingling of ginger lily and hundreds of other sweet-scented blossoms to delight your senses.

Remember, too, “Hawaii’” is, not just one, but a cluster of islands of unsurpassed beauty … Oahu, Hawaii, Maui, and Kauai, linked by modern airplane and steamer facilities, Hotel accommodations are of the best, both from the standpoint of service and reasonable rates.

    Five days at sea for $110, first class. Man…

    (I went 4 out of days towards Pearl from Esquimault once, and got turned back. Ended up off the Queen Charlotte’s instead. Gotta love the Navy.)
