Honolulu, Oahu — 3 nights

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 sightseeing. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu day trip planner.

San Francisco to Honolulu is an approximately 7-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from San Francisco to Honolulu is minus 2 hours. In April, Honolulu is a bit warmer than San Francisco - with highs of 83°F and lows of 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) to allow enough time to fly to Volcano.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii — 3 nights

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Venture out of the city with trips to Laupahoehoe Beach Park (in Laupahoehoe) and Hilo (Pacific Tsunami Museum, Akaka Falls State Park, &more). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kilauea Iki Trailhead, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, get impressive views of Kīlauea, and see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum.

For more things to do, ratings, maps, and tourist information, read Volcano trip planner.

Getting from Honolulu to Volcano by flight takes about 2.5 hours. Other options: fly. In April in Volcano, expect temperatures between 81°F during the day and 67°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Fri) early enough to catch the flight to Lahaina.

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.
