Moving from Hawaii to the East Coast

Hawaii is the most isolated center of population in the world. The state is located 2,390 miles from California, 3,850 miles from Japan, 4,900 miles from China, and 5,280 miles from the Philippines. We don’t know if there is a correlation, but interestingly enough, Hawaii has also been named the happiest state in the US!

According to Pacific Business News, “personal-finance website WalletHub said it examined the 50 states across 31 key metrics, ranging from depression rate to sports participation rate to income growth, to determine happiness. Hawaii topped the ranking with 68.27 out of a possible 100 points. In the three main categories of the report, the Aloha State ranked first in emotional and physical well-being; 30th in the work environment; and fourth in community and environment.”

The pineapple paradise consists of eight main islands: Molokai, Oahu, Niihau, Kauai, Maui, Lanai, Kahoolawe, and the Big Island of Hawaii.

Interesting facts about Hawaii:

  1. Hawaii is one of only two states in the US that grows American coffee.
  2. The state has a population of fewer than 1.5 million people.
  3. Every ethnic group living in the isolated volcanic archipelago in the Central Pacific is a minority.
  4. Hawaii was the 50th and the last state to join the Union on August 20th, 1959.
  5. The state has its own time zone and there is no daylight savings time.

There are many questions that may come to mind when thinking about moving from Hawaii to the East Coast. Will people be nice there as well? Will I manage to survive the winter in the East Coast? How will my lifestyle change? How hard will it be to build a new life in a new state? Will I ever regret this decision and wish to come back?

The questions will be abound. But you will never be completely sure unless you take a leap of faith and move towards your new life. Life on the East Coast will be different. And maybe you’re looking forward to the fast-paced life and making changes in your lifestyle.

Facts about the East Coast:

  • It is the most populated coastal area in the US
  • The original colonies of Great Britain in North America lay along the East Coast. All 13 of them!
  • The region is also known as the Eastern Seaboard or the Atlantic Coast.
  • East Coast has a rich history, especially since this particular part of America was the first to be invaded by Europeans.

The North Atlantic Ocean coastline is made of fourteen states: Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

New place – new climate

Let’s be honest, the Hawaiian climate is perfect. You get to enjoy the warm weather year-round. There are only two seasons: Winter – from November to April, and Summer – from May to October.

The climate of the East Coast, according to the Köppen climate classification, is divided into three basic regions. The region from the northern part of Maine down to the northern part of Rhode Island and Connecticut has a continental climate. If you move to this region, you will experience warm summers and cold and snowy winters.

The second region is the area that covers the parts from southern Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York City down to central Florida. In this part of the East Coast, your summers will be hot and long, while winters will be cold and sometimes snowy, which describes a temperate climate.

The third region is the part that covers the area around south-central Florida which has a tropical climate and warm (sometimes hot) weather throughout the year.

Housing and Living Costs

Hawaii is one of the most expensive places to live in the US. The cost of living in any large and popular city on the East Coast can be very expensive compared to the rest of the nation as well. But since you are moving from Hawaii, you will not have much trouble adjusting your finances. You will find living on the East Coast more affordable.
