Lihue ©
Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kauai Museum and Kauai's Hindu Monastery. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Wailua Falls and Polihale State Park. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Tunnels Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Shipwreck Beach, hike along Kauai Path, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Koloa Rum Company.

To find ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, read Lihue road trip planning app.

Greensboro to Lihue is an approximately 16-hour combination of train and flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Greensboro to Lihue due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Greensboro in August since evenings lows in Lihue dip to °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) to allow time to travel to Honolulu.

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 Lanikai Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Venture out of the city with trips to Haleiwa (Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Scuba & Snorkeling, &more), Waimanalo (Bellows Field Beach Park & Waimanalo Beach) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Ko Olina Lagoons, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sharks Cove, contemplate the long history of Queen Emma Summer Palace, and get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

For where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, read Honolulu trip app.

Getting from Lihue to Honolulu by flight takes about 2.5 hours. In August, daytime highs in Honolulu are °F, while nighttime lows are °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
