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 Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). Next up on the itinerary: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, pause for some photo ops at USS Arizona Memorial, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, read Honolulu road trip planner .

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 Ka'anapali Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park), Lahaina Banyan Court (in Lahaina) and Hanawi Falls (in Hana). The adventure continues: explore and take pictures at Hana Highway - Road to Hana, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ho'okipa Beach Park, relax in the rural setting at Surfing Goat Dairy, and pause for some serene contemplation at The Awakening Church.

To find reviews, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, use the Kula route maker website .
