The beaches of Hawaii have always held a charm over tourists, especially the celebrities. Almost every celebrity worth his/her name has vacationed at least once in Hawaii. Jodie Foster is no exception as she played around in the warm beautiful waters. She was accompanied by her sons who joined her in tubing and swimming in the ocean. They were all there for Easter Sunday as the actress was spotted wearing a tee sporting the words "Hur Ley".

Location: The most recent among the American states, Hawaii is located out in the central Pacific Ocean. It is the northernmost group of islands belonging to Polynesia.

Accommodation: There is plenty of room for people of all budgets to stay at Hawaii. A general tip would be to avoid the main island of Hawaii and stay at the other islands, Maui or O'ahu which will be cheaper. For instance, Marriott Kauai offers a rate of about $100 per day while Kahala resort will cost you $500 for the same. There are inns, hotels, cottages, resorts and villas on offer.

Main Attractions: If the face of the whole planet is searched, it would be difficult to find another place which is as scenic and beautiful as Hawaii. The paradise of nature offers a host of activities for tourists, visitors and residents alike, irrespective of their interests. For the lovers of history, there is the tour of Pearl Harbor with visits to the museum and monument. Whale and dolphin watching offer excitement while rounds of Golf on the picturesque courses will be relaxation. Renting a car on the island and going around will be a rich experience. Island hopping is not a bad option either! Traditional dining of seafood will be a memorable experience as will the shopping be! Since Hawaii is home to several volcanoes, trekking, exploring and watching them in itself would be a great pastime.
