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.
We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Ehukai Beach Park. You'll explore and learn at USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, and examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

For traveler tips, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu trip planner.

Lahaina, Maui

— 3 nights

Crown Jewel of 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 Kapalua Beach. Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Wailea Beach will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lahaina: Maluaka Beach (in Wailea) and Tutu's Pantry (in Kihei). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Napili Beach, walk around D.T. Fleming Park, and head outdoors with Outdoor Activities.

Plan a trip to Lahaina easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

You can fly from Honolulu to Lahaina in 2.5 hours. In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to travel to Lanai City.

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.

Here are some ideas for day two: shop like a local with Banyan Gallery, admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, pick up some local products at Hilo Farmers Market, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Mokupapapa Discovery Center, then take in the dramatic scenery at Rainbow Falls, and finally take in the exciting artwork at Extreme Exposure Fine Art Gallery.

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.
