Honolulu, Oahu — 6 nights

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, get engrossed in the history at Iolani Palace, and stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

To find other places to visit and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu online visit planner.

Traveling by flight from Lahaina to Honolulu takes 2.5 hours. April in Honolulu sees daily highs of 83°F and lows of 71°F at night. On the 10th (Mon), you'll travel 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.
