Hawaii – the 808 state

 

The nickname ‘the 808 State’ refers to Hawaii’s area code, which is 808. The term has become a popular shorthand for the state, and is often used in reference to its unique culture and music. The number 808 has taken on a broader meaning as well, representing a sense of unity and community among those that live in Hawaii. It is our hope that this site will serve those that live here and those that visit.
