Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach Park, & more) and Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku). Next up on the itinerary: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, get into the urban bustle at Polynesian Cultural Center, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial.

To see other places to visit, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu road trip planner.

Atlanta to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle and flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Atlanta to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. In June, daily temperatures in Honolulu can reach 86°F, while at night they dip to 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) so you can travel to Hanalei.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

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.
Bring the kids along to Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. Take a break from Kailua-Kona with a short trip to Hawaii Cigar & Ukulele in Hawi, about 1h 25 min away. There's much more to do: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, take a stroll through Holualoa Village, and admire the verdant scenery at Pololu Valley Lookout.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Volcano ©
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Akaka Falls State Park and Papakōlea Green Sand Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Paradise Meadows Orchard & Bee Farm Home of Hawaii's Local Buzz (in Naalehu), Hilo (Rainbow Falls & Liliuokalani Gardens) and Holei Sea Arch (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). Spend the 14th (Sun) among the fascinating landscape of Kulanaokuaiki Campground. There's still lots to do: hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, head outdoors with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook, stroll through Sulphur Banks, and take in the exciting artwork at Volcano Art Center.

To find reviews, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Volcano day trip website .
