Cultural Tourism


According to our 2019 Visitor Satisfaction & Activity Report, at least 55% of survey respondents took part in activities that pertain to history, culture, and fine arts.  Cultural tourism is tourism related to Hawaii’s multi-ethnic cultures that provide residents and visitors with enriching experiences and insights into the history, customs, arts, and traditions of our islands.  Below are examples past projects and events that HTA has supported.
