Honolulu, Oahu

— 2 nights

Big Pineapple

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: hike along Diamond Head State Monument, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, and appreciate the history behind King Kamehameha Statue.

Before you visit Honolulu, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Des Moines to Honolulu is an approximately 11-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from Des Moines to Honolulu. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Des Moines in June since evenings lows in Honolulu dip to 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Fri) to allow enough time to fly to Lahaina.

Lahaina, Maui

— 3 nights

Crown Jewel of Maui

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.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Sat): see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, then take a memorable tour with Tours, and then kick back and relax at Napili Beach. Here are some ideas for day two: walk around Lahaina Banyan Court, then meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center, and then admire the majestic nature at Iao Valley.

To find where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Lahaina sightseeing planner.

You can fly from Honolulu to Lahaina in 2.5 hours. In June, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 72°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can catch the flight back home.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
