Hilo, Island of Hawaii

America's Wettest City

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.
Kick off your visit on the 20th (Sun): whizz through the canopy at Skyline Hawaii - Big Island Zipline Tours, kick back and relax at Richardson Beach Park, then kick back and relax at Carlsmith Beach Park, and finally admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens.

Houston to Hilo is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Houston to Hilo due to the time zone difference.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel to Lahaina.

Lahaina, Maui

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.
For shopping fun, head to Maui Hands or Pakaloha Bikinis. You'll get in some beach time at Kapalua Beach and Makena Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Wailea (Keawakapu Beach & Ulua Beach). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Old Lahaina Courthouse, fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour, stroll through Baby Beach, and trek along Kapalua Coastal Trail.

To find maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Lahaina itinerary planner.

Getting from Hilo to Lahaina by flight takes about 3.5 hours. June in Lahaina sees daily highs of 84°F and lows of 72°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) so you can travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Lanikai Beach and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get in touch with nature at Photography Tours and Dolphin Quest. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo) and Lanikai Pillboxes (in Kailua). It doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at Halona Blowhole and stop by Shirokiya Japan Village Walk.

To see ratings, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu journey builder.

Traveling by flight from Lahaina to Honolulu takes 3.5 hours. In June, daily temperatures in Honolulu can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 26th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
