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.
Take a break from the city and head to Koko Crater Railway Trail and Photography Tours. Step off the beaten path and head to Stand-Up Paddleboarding and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kailua (Lanikai Pillboxes & Lanikai Beach). The adventure continues: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, look for gifts at Shimazu Shave ice, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and appreciate the views at Nu’uanu Pali.

Step out of Lahaina to go to Haiku and see Haiku Mill, which is approximately 1h 5 min away. There's lots more to do: trek along Acid War Zone Trail, contemplate the waterfront views at Lahaina Harbor, pause for some serene contemplation at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church, and relax in the rural setting at Punakea Palms.

The size, shape, and color of Grand Canyon National Park combine to leave an impression on visitors as deep as the canyon itself.
