In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Big Island Volcano Private Tours as well as Gone Surfing Hawaii. Visit Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park for some beach relaxation. Do your shopping at Polynesian Cultural Center and Ala Moana Center. The adventure continues: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

For traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip site .

Washington DC to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour combination of subway, bus, and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and flight.

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Ka'anapali Beach and Maui Ocean Center. Step out of the city life by going to Haleakala Crater and Zipline. Venture out of the city with trips to Lahaina (Lahaina Banyan Court & Napili Beach). There's more to do: kick back and relax at Wailea Beach and admire all the interesting features of Haleakala Highway (Crater Road).

To see ratings, photos, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Kihei driving holiday planner.

You can fly from Honolulu to Kihei in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and taxi; or do a combination of flight and car. In April, daytime highs in Kihei are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
