Honolulu, Oahu

— 6 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You've now added Aloha Private Tours to your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at USS Arizona Memorial, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

To find reviews, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu trip builder website.

Columbus to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Columbus to Honolulu. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Columbus in February, with highs in Honolulu at 81°F and lows at 69°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel to Lahaina.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

— 2 nights
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 23rd (Tue), explore the striking landscape at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), look for all kinds of wild species at Devastation Trail, and then surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour. Here are some ideas for day two: shop like a local with Volcano Art Center Gallery, then trek along Sulphur Banks, then see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, and finally stroll through Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Heart of the Kona Coast

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
