We think that Holes could not be filmed in Hawaii because there are no volcanoes in the novel or film it is mostly surrounded by water and trees. The second reason that Holes could not be filmed in Hawaii is because it rains quite a lot every year, more than the state that Holes was filmed. Hawaii is also popular for hurricanes and typhoons. More reasons are that Stanley would have to cross the Pacific Ocean to get to Hawaii but he travelled on a bus. We would hope to visit Hawaii one day to expeirence all the great sights and here is some facts about the magnificant state Hawaii! Hope you enjoy the rest of the blog. 🙂

It is one of the newest 50 U.S. states.

Hawaii’s coastline is around about  750 miles (1,210 km) long, which is fourth in the United States after Alaska, Florida, and California.

All the Hawaiian islands were formed from volcanic activity at an undersea magma source called a hotspot.

The last volcanic eruption outside the Big Island occurred at Haleakalā on Maui before the late 18th century.

The eight main islands, Hawaiʻi, Maui, Oʻahu, Kahoʻolawe, Lanaʻi, Molokaʻi, Kauaʻi and Niʻihau are accompanied by many others. Kaʻala is a small island near Niʻihau that is often ignored.

Hawaii is the only state of the United States that is not really located in North America, it is completely surrounded by water, is entirely an archipelago, has royal palaces, and does not have a straight line in its state boundary. To find out more about Hawaii .
