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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park, Waimea Bay, &more). There's lots more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace.

To find ratings and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip planning app.

Richmond to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Richmond to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. In July, daytime highs in Honolulu are 88°F, while nighttime lows are 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sat) so you can travel to Kula.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Heart of the Kona Coast

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Tue): cast your line with a fishing tour, then fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and then kick back and relax at Kahaluu Beach.

For where to stay, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Kailua-Kona trip planning app.

Traveling by flight from Kula to Kailua-Kona takes 3.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 86°F in July, and nighttime lows around 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Wed) to allow time to 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.
