In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Family-friendly places like USS Arizona Memorial and Waikiki Beach will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, get to know the fascinating history of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, enjoy the sand and surf at Turtle Bay Beach, and get some jogging in at Ala Moana Beach Park.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu custom trip planner.

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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Ka'anapali Beach and Wailea Beach. Take a break from Lahaina with a short trip to Haleakala Crater in Haleakala National Park, about 1h 50 min away. The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Maui Ocean Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Napili Beach, kick back and relax at Kapalua Beach, and examine the collection at Wo Hing Temple Museum.
