Hawaii Attracts 'Lost' Fans

"Seinfeld" and "Sex and the City" fans flock to New York City, so why shouldn't "Lost"fans celebrate their favorite show with a Hawaiian vacation? CNN reports that, in the last six years, the TV series has pumped approximately $400 million into Hawaii's economy, according to Pacific Business News. Fans come not just to enjoy the usual Hawaiian R&R, but to spend as much as 10 hours in a day checking out locations where some of the show's most memorable scenes were filmed.

One such tour is run by Ed Kos, who offers four different tours of varying lengths ranging between $79 and $209. He's been told by some fans that his tour is the reason they came to visit Hawaii. "We had a man propose to his girlfriend at the same location that Jack and Juliet embrace and kiss for the first time on the show," he said. "We have people bring their own Dharma suits and wear them during the tour."
