Honolulu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Family-friendly places like USS Arizona Memorial and Diamond Head State Monument will thrill your kids. Step out of Honolulu to go to Kailua and see Kailua Beach Park, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, step aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial, and steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Honolulu trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Salt Lake City to Honolulu is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Salt Lake City to Honolulu. Traveling from Salt Lake City in May, things will get a bit warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 84°F and lows about 71°F. You'll have a few hours on the 6th (Wed) to wrap things up before traveling to Kihei.

Kihei

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.
Bring the kids along to Maui Ocean Center and Lahaina Banyan Court. Get out of town with these interesting Kihei side-trips: Kapalua Beach (in Kapalua), Lahaina (Ka'anapali Beach, Lahaina Jodo Mission, & more) and Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park). There's lots more to do: admire all the interesting features of Hana Highway - Road to Hana, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, play a few rounds at Makena Golf Courses, and kick back and relax at Ho'okipa Beach Park.

To see ratings, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, use the Kihei itinerary maker app .

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 May in Kihei, expect temperatures between 86°F during the day and 68°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
