In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

For reviews, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary builder app .

Phoenix to Honolulu is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone changes from Mountain Standard Time (MST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -3 hour difference. Traveling from Phoenix in October, plan for a bit warmer nights in Honolulu, with lows around 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Lahaina.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Wailuku (Hale Ho'ike'ike at the Bailey House & Iao Valley), Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park) and Kalepolepo Beach Park (in Kihei). Spend the 29th (Tue) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Ka'anapali Beach, wander the streets of Lahaina Front Street, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court.

To find maps, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Lahaina sightseeing planner.

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Lahaina takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and ferry; or do a combination of flight and bus. In October in Lahaina, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 73°F at night. You'll have a few hours on the 2nd (Sat) to wrap things up before traveling home.
