Great Hawaii Travel Deals for Denverites!
posted by: Amber Johnson
Hawaii is at the top of my bucket list and I have resolved to go within the next year to find my long-lost love. During my only visit (when I was five years old) a Hawaiian hunk gave me a lei at that Honolulu airport and I have never forgotten him.
