The state’s tourism industry is feeling the pinch, as more travelers are looking for ways to spend less money on vacation.
A new report released today by the Hawaii Travel Information Association found that travelers in Hawaii were spending $2.7 billion on their vacations last year, down from $2 of the same amount in 2015.
The association said the number of holiday-makers in Hawaii dropped by 8 percent, from 2.6 million to 1.7 million.
The industry also reported a 7 percent drop in vacationers overall, from $1.2 billion in 2015 to $1 billion.
Hawaii has seen its share of vacationers decrease for a number of reasons.
It has had a number.
It is a tourist-friendly state, with hotels, casinos, and resorts, but also some of the lowest rates in the country for staying in a hotel, with average rates around $80 a night.
But the tourism industry’s woes also extend beyond Hawaii.
While the recession hurt the tourism sector, the recession also hurt the state’s economy.
Tourism declined in all but one of Hawaii’s counties.
And it has been a tough time for hotel chains.
Hawaii’s economy has been growing steadily since 2008.
The state was the nation’s fifth-largest in 2016, but the economy has only seen a 4 percent increase in the past three years.
In 2015, the state experienced its largest annual recession since the Great Depression.
