Hawaii became the 50th state on August 21, 1959.
The capitol of Hawaii is Honolulu, on the island of Oahu. Oahu has the largest population of any of the Hawaiian islands, but it is not the largest island. The largest Hawaiian island is the Big Island of Hawaii, the second largest is Maui, and the third largest is Oahu. The other Hawaiian islands that tourists often visit are Kauai, Lanai, and Molokai.
Alaska became the 49th state on January 3, 1959, only seven months before Hawaii became the 50th state.
