Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Get a sense of the local culture at Volcano Art Center and Jagger Museum. Visiting Kilauea Iki Trailhead and Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku) will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Hilo (Hilo Farmers Market, Akaka Falls State Park, & more). Spend the 29th (Mon) among the fascinating landscape of Kulanaokuaiki Campground. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, witness a stunning natural landmark at Steam Vents, and trek along Sulphur Banks.

For other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Volcano day trip planning app .

Explore your travel options from Lanai City to Volcano with the Route module. July in Volcano sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 71°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to travel to Hanalei.

Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Escape the urban bustle at Waikiki Beach and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Relax by the water at Kailua Beach Park and Sunset Beach Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa). The adventure continues: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, appreciate the history behind Queen Liliuokalani Statue, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, and look for gifts at Muumuu Heaven.

Do a combination of taxi and flight from Hanalei to Honolulu in 3 hours. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in August, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
