Kula is a district of Maui, Hawaii, that stretches across the "up-country", the western-facing slopes of Haleakalā, from Makawao to Ulupalakua. Start off your visit on the 14th (Sat): look for gifts at Tutu's Pantry, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Theresa Roman Catholic Church, then stroll through Kalepolepo Beach Park, and finally take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Haleakala Crater. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: admire the majestic nature at Iao Valley, observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center, and then make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, and stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

To find traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip itinerary planner.

You can fly from Kula to Honolulu in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and flight. In December, daytime highs in Honolulu are 82°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
