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.
Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and Saint Augustine by-the-Sea. Next up on the itinerary: hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, pause for some photo ops at Princess Bernice Pauahi Statue, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and hike along Koko Crater Railway Trail.

To see photos, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip planning website.

Montreal, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 15-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Montreal to Honolulu. In September, Honolulu is somewhat warmer than Montreal - with highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel to Kihei.

Kihei ©
Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
You'll get in some beach time at Ho'okipa Beach Park and Wailea Beach. Visiting Parasailing & Paragliding and Kapalua Beach will get you outdoors. Go for a jaunt from Kihei to Lahaina to see Lahaina Banyan Court about 36 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Kamaole Beach Park II, stroll through Kamaole Beach Park III, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery, and get some jogging in at Wailea Beach Path.

Kailua-Kona

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.

Greenwell Store Museum, explore the striking landscape of Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, and browse the exhibits of Kona Coffee Living History Farm.
