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 26th (Thu): explore and take pictures at Devastation Trail. Keep things going the next day: browse the fresh offerings at Hilo Farmers Market, then trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then take in the exciting artwork at Volcano Art Center Gallery, and finally admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens.

To see photos, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read Hilo online trip maker.

Los Angeles to Hilo is an approximately 9-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Hilo. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Los Angeles in March: high temperatures in Hilo hover around 80°F and lows are around 66°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to 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.
Get in touch with nature at Diamond Head State Monument and Kailua Beach Park. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Waikiki Beach and USS Arizona Memorial. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Ko Hana Distillers (in Waipahu) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's lots more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu road trip planning website.

You can fly from Hilo to Honolulu in 3 hours. In March, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) to allow time to travel to Kihei.

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.
