Kailua ©
Kailua is a census-designated place (CDP) in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States. Your list of things to see and do now includes Friday Night Fireworks at Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, Bishop Museum, Ko Olina Lagoons, and other attractions. Get a sense of the local culture at Byodo-In Temple and Ulupo Heiau State Monument. Visit Kailua Beach Park and Makapu'u Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kailua: Pupukea (Ehukai Beach Park & Banzai Pipeline) and Laie Hawaii Temple (in Laie). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kalama Beach Park, sample the tasty concoctions at Lanikai Brewing Company, look for all kinds of wild species at Kawainui Marsh, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Valley of the Temples.

Plan my trip to Kailua with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Baltimore to Kailua is an approximately 15-hour combination of train, subway, bus, and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 5 hours. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Kailua when traveling from Baltimore in September, with lows around 76°F. You'll have a few hours on the 27th (Fri) to wrap things up before traveling to San Francisco.

San Francisco is a top holiday destination featuring scenic beauty and great ethnic and cultural diversity.
Get a sense of the local culture at Alcatraz Island and Twin Peaks. Appreciate the collections at Walt Disney Family Museum and Cable Car Museum. Change things up with a short trip to VJB Cellars in Kenwood (about 1h 15 min away). There's still lots to do: snap pictures at Golden Gate Bridge, take a leisurely stroll along Fisherman's Wharf, take in the spiritual surroundings of Grace Cathedral, and visit a coastal fixture at Fort Point.

For traveler tips and tourist information, refer to the San Francisco trip site .

Fly from Kailua to San Francisco in 8.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Kailua to San Francisco due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Kailua in September, with highs in San Francisco at 76°F and lows at 58°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Mon) to allow time for travel back home.
