Kula is a district of Maui, Hawaii, that stretches across the "up-country", the western-facing slopes of Haleakalā, from Makawao to Ulupalakua. Bring the kids along to Maui Ocean Center and Iao Valley. Get out of town with these interesting Kula side-trips: Lahaina (Scuba & Snorkeling & Lahaina Banyan Court) and Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park). There's lots more to do: cruise along Hana Highway - Road to Hana, relax in the rural setting at Leilani Farm Sanctuary, and enjoy the sand and surf at Ho'okipa Beach Park.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Diamond Head State Monument and Waikiki Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). And it doesn't end there: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
