There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Hana Highway - Road to Hana, kick back and relax at Ho'okipa Beach Park, observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kalepolepo Beach Park.

For traveler tips, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, read Kihei day trip planner.

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 11th (Thu): take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, look for gifts at Hilo Coffee Mill, then take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens, and finally admire the majestic nature at Akaka Falls State Park. Here are some ideas for day two: get outside with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook, then view the masterpieces at Volcano Art Center, and then stroll through Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail.

Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). And it doesn't end there: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, don't miss a visit to Battleship Missouri Memorial, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Honolulu trip simple and quick.

Traveling by flight from Hilo to Honolulu takes 2.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 86°F in June, and nighttime lows around 74°F. On the 17th (Wed), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
