Honolulu, Oahu

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Pupukea Beach Park, Sunset Beach Park, &more). And it doesn't end there: admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and step aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial.

To find where to stay, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary planning app.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from New York City in June; daily highs in Honolulu reach 86°F and lows reach 74°F.

Lahaina, Maui

Crown Jewel of Maui

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.
Go for a jaunt from Lahaina to Wailuku to see Iao Valley about 44 minutes away. Spend the 25th (Sat) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, stroll through Ka'anapali Beach, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center.

To see maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read our Lahaina trip builder website.

Getting from Honolulu to Lahaina by flight takes about 3.5 hours. In June, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 72°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) to allow time to travel to Hilo.

America's Wettest City

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 27th (Mon): get a taste of the local shopping with Volcano Art Center Gallery, then trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then get outside with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook, and finally take in the dramatic scenery at Rainbow Falls. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: browse the exhibits of Mokupapapa Discovery Center, pick up some local products at Hilo Farmers Market, take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens, then shop like a local with Banyan Gallery, and finally admire the sheer force of Akaka Falls State Park.

Discover how to plan a Hilo trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

You can fly from Lahaina to Hilo in 3.5 hours. In June in Hilo, expect temperatures between 83°F during the day and 69°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
