Small Town VS Big City, Hawaii

Did you know that Kailua Kona and Hilo are the "biggest" towns on Hawaii Island as part of a total of 250,000 residents on the whole island the size of Connecticut? Small town livin’ with less 40,000 residents in Kona..while Oahu has one million residents. But comparing life in Kona vs Honolulu is still comparing island life to anywhere else and it definitely has its good points!
