Hawaii contains eight national parks. The islands are most famous for their volcanoes, beautiful landscapes and complex ecosystems which offer unusual hiking and camping opportunities. Other parks were established to preserve native activities, history and culture from ancient ritual sites to a Hansen's disease colony. Hawaii is also home to a national memorial designed to encourage quiet contemplation, and to appeal to our memory and sense of sacrifice after the bombing of Pearl Harbor
