Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Ehukai Beach Park. You'll explore and learn at USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, and contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace.

For more things to do, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu trip itinerary app.

Fresno to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -2 hour difference. While traveling from Fresno, expect a bit cooler days and somewhat warmer nights in Honolulu, ranging from highs of 86°F to lows of 74°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) early enough to travel to Lahaina.

nights
Lahaina, Maui

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.
Relax by the water at Ka'anapali Beach and Maluaka Beach. Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Wailea Beach will get you outdoors. Step out of Lahaina with an excursion to Tutu's Pantry in Kihei--about 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Napili Beach, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, and tour the pleasant surroundings at D.T. Fleming Park.

For photos, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, go to the Lahaina travel itinerary planner.

Fly from Honolulu to Lahaina in 3.5 hours. In July, daily temperatures in Lahaina can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 73°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Lanai City.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Fri): admire the natural beauty at Volcano Garden Arts, get a taste of the local shopping with Volcano Art Center Gallery, then hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and finally get outside with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook. On the 8th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get a taste of the local shopping with Banyan Gallery, admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, pick up some local products at Hilo Farmers Market, then learn more about the world around you at Mokupapapa Discovery Center, then take in the dramatic scenery at Rainbow Falls, and finally view the masterpieces at Extreme Exposure Fine Art Gallery.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
On the 9th (Sun), explore the wealth of natural beauty at Puukohola National Historic Park, get a taste of the local shopping with Lava Light Galleries, and then get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.
