Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Kids will enjoy Waikiki Beach and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. You'll get in some beach time at Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie). There's much more to do: pause for some photo ops at USS Arizona Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Manoa Falls, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip builder.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from New York City to Honolulu. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from New York City in April, with highs in Honolulu at 83°F and lows at 70°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Thu) early enough to travel to Lahaina.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
On the 14th (Fri), kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach and then make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court. On the 15th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Maui Ocean Center, then enjoy the sand and surf at Wailea Beach, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Maui Tropical Plantation.

To see traveler tips, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Lahaina trip itinerary planner.

Fly from Honolulu to Lahaina in 3.5 hours. In April in Lahaina, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 69°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
