In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

To see other places to visit, reviews, maps, and tourist information, read Honolulu planning website .

Minneapolis to Honolulu is an approximately 10-hour flight. Traveling from Minneapolis to Honolulu, you'll gain 4 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Minneapolis in July, expect a bit warmer with lows of 75°F in Honolulu. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Fri) so you can travel to Lahaina.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
On the 13th (Sat), stroll through Napili Beach and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Ka'anapali Beach. On your second day here, stop by Glass Mango Designs, then immerse yourself in nature at Iao Valley, then meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center, and finally don't miss a visit to Lahaina Banyan Court.

To find maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Lahaina tour itinerary builder site .

You can do a combination of flight and bus from Honolulu to Lahaina in 3 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight, taxi, and ferry. In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
