My husband and I want to visit there and maybe vacation for seven days.
I have been to Oahu, the Big Island and Kauai.
They are all wonderful for different reasons. If you have never been to Hawaii you will find Oahu a great place to vacation. Be sure to drive around the entire island. There is so much to see. Don't limit yourself to Waikiki - the typical tourist spot.

I'd suggest going to the Big Island. It's relatively empty of people and full of variety. Plus it's, well, big! Stargazing on Mauna Kea is wonderful, the huge contrast between the wet side and the dry side impressive, Volcanoes Nat Park well worth a visit, as is Hawi on the north end. Cheaper to stay in Hilo but best to fly in to Kona.
For an excellent (& inspiring) novel about some of Hawai'i's more troubled past, see Alan Brennert's Moloka'i 5 days ago
