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: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu online holiday planner .

Madison to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from Madison to Honolulu. In November, Honolulu is much hotter than Madison - with highs of 84°F and lows of 72°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) so you can travel to Kula.

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 2nd (Mon): make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, and then immerse yourself in nature at Iao Valley. Here are some ideas for day two: meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center and then get impressive views of Haleakala Crater.

To find photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Kula itinerary tool .

Fly from Honolulu to Kula in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and taxi. In December, daily temperatures in Kula can reach 82°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
