I like Hawaii – wish I could afford to live here.
Civil Beat – Hawaii No Longer Magnet for Young, Single, Educated
Young, single, educated Americans came to Hawaii in droves in the late 1960s. Whether encouraged to “drop out” of society by Timothy Leary or just lured by the islands natural beauty, a generation of flower people and peaceniks arrived on these shores at a rate as high as anywhere else in the country.Decades later, the trend has all but completely reversed. Young, single, college-educated people are more likely to be leaving Hawaii for greener pastures than coming in search of waves and sun.
