Honolulu, Oahu

— 3 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.
Honolulu is known for historic sites, wildlife, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take an in-depth tour of Iolani Palace.

Plan a Honolulu trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

Lahaina, Maui

— 4 nights

Crown Jewel of Maui

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.
Go for a jaunt from Lahaina to Wailuku to see Iao Valley about 44 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, enjoy the sand and surf at Napili Beach, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Lahaina trip planner.

Fly from Honolulu to Lahaina in 2.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 84°F in June, and nighttime lows around 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Wed) so you can travel 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.
