Los Angeles ©
Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Get out of town with these interesting Los Angeles side-trips: Anaheim (Star Wars Launch Bay & Disneyland Park). There's much more to do: get in on the family fun at Universal Studios Hollywood, admire the landmark architecture of Bradbury Building, look and learn at Griffith Observatory, and learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

To see photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Los Angeles holiday builder app.

Newark to Los Angeles is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Newark to Los Angeles due to the time zone difference. Expect much hotter weather when traveling from Newark in December: highs in Los Angeles hover around 69°F, while lows dip to 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) early enough to travel to Hilo.

One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
Start off your visit on the 6th (Sun): admire the sheer force of Rainbow Falls, head outdoors with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook, stroll through Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Devastation Trail, and finally see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum. On the next day, admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, shop like a local with Hilo Farmers Market, then admire the natural beauty at Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, and finally take in the dramatic scenery at Akaka Falls State Park.

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Wailuku (Hale Ho'ike'ike at the Bailey House & Iao Valley). There's lots more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center, walk around Lahaina Banyan Court, and appreciate the history behind Lahaina Jodo Mission.

Plan my trip to Lahaina with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Fly from Hilo to Lahaina in 3.5 hours. In December in Lahaina, expect temperatures between 78°F during the day and 68°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Honolulu is known for historic sites, wildlife, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: browse the exhibits of USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

For where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu travel itinerary planner.

Traveling by flight from Lahaina to Honolulu takes 3.5 hours. In December, daytime highs in Honolulu are 82°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
