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.

Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach, don't miss a visit to Lahaina Banyan Court, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kapalua Beach, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's still lots to do: pause for some photo ops at USS Arizona Memorial, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For photos, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip itinerary builder.

Traveling by flight from Lahaina to Honolulu takes 3.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in September, and nighttime lows around 28°C. On the 27th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
