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.
On the 3rd (Sat), identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.

Before you visit Kailua-Kona, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Dallas to Kailua-Kona is an approximately 10-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 4 hours. Traveling from Dallas in August, expect nights in Kailua-Kona to be about the same, around 77°F, while days are slightly colder, around 87°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) early enough to drive to Volcano.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 4th (Sun), trek along Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, get outside with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook, and then trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead.

For where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Volcano travel itinerary planner .

Traveling by car from Kailua-Kona to Volcano takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Kailua-Kona in August since evenings lows in Volcano dip to 71°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and stroll through Diamond Head State Monument.

To find where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu day trip planning app .

Traveling by combination of bus and flight from Volcano to Honolulu takes 4.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in August, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
