Lahaina

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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lahaina: Stand-Up Paddleboarding (in Kihei), Wailuku (Iao Valley & Hale Ho'ike'ike at the Bailey House) and Wailea Beach (in Wailea). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Ka'anapali Beach, meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center, take an in-depth tour of Baldwin Home Museum, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

To see maps, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Lahaina online trip planner .

Newark to Lahaina is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 5 hours. Traveling from Newark in October, expect nights in Lahaina to be much warmer, around 73°F, while days are a bit warmer, around 84°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Wed) early enough to travel to Honolulu.

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 Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, and steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial.
