Poipu

— 10 nights
You've added Koloa Zipline, Awa'awapuhi Trail Parking, Canyon Trail, and other attractions to your itinerary. Relax by the water at Poipu Beach Park and Shipwreck Beach. Visiting Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail and Polihale State Park will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Poipu: Waimea (Waimea Canyon State Park & Russian Fort Elizabeth State Historical Park).

Plan a trip to Poipu easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Chicago to Poipu is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and taxi. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time is minus 4 hours. Traveling from Chicago in December, expect Poipu to be warmer, temps between 79°F and 67°F. On the 6th (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
