US Government Shut Down: What it means for Hawaii Tourism

US Government Shut Down: What it means for Hawaii Tourism

Hawaii is the first US State taking the initiative and informed their visitors about what the current Federal Government close-down means.  The Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) has created a special Alert page on its website providing industry partners, visitors and residents with information and online resources about national parks, monuments and wildlife refuges in the Hawaiian Islands that could be affected by the partial federal government shutdown.

The partial federal government shutdown, which took effect on Friday, December 21 at 7:00 p.m. HST, may result in closures at national parks, monuments, and wildlife refuges, as well as suspension of select federally funded services, in the Hawaiian Islands.

The Alert page can be accessed from HTA’s home page or by clicking on the link below.

HTA is monitoring the progress of the shutdown and its effect on facilities and services in Hawaii and will post new information to the Alert page as it becomes available.
