Honolulu, Oahu

— 4 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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Get outdoors at Diamond Head State Monument and Scuba & Snorkeling. Venture out of the city with trips to Lanikai Pillboxes (in Kailua), Sharks Cove (in Pupukea) and Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kuhio Beach, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and immerse yourself in nature at Puu Ualakaa State Park.

For more things to do, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, read Honolulu vacation planner.

Seattle to Honolulu is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Seattle to Honolulu. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Seattle in June, with highs in Honolulu at 86°F and lows at 74°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sat) so you can catch the flight to Kihei.

Kihei, Maui

— 11 nights
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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Pipiwai Trail and Makena Beach. Visiting Zipline and Little Beach will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Kihei side-trips: Pools at Ohe'o (in Haleakala National Park), Paia (Ho'okipa Beach Park & Mantokuji Temple Mission of Paia) and Hana (Wailua Falls & Off-Road Tours). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Keawakapu Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Wailea Beach, identify plant and animal life at Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, and work some fitness into your day at Wailea Beach Path.

For where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Kihei travel planner.

You can fly from Honolulu to Kihei in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can fly. Expect a daytime high around 87°F in June, and nighttime lows around 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Wed) to allow enough time to fly back home.

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.
