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.
Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Byodo-In Temple. Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Lanikai Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Valley & Sunset Beach Park). Next up on the itinerary: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, explore the striking landscape at Halona Blowhole, and trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail.

For other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip planner .

Bismarck to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Bismarck to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. In August, Honolulu is a bit warmer than Bismarck - with highs of 88°F and lows of 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Wed) so you can travel to Kihei.

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Step off the beaten path and head to Kamaole Beach Park II and Parasailing & Paragliding. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Makena Beach and Kamaole Beach Park III. Change things up with these side-trips from Kihei: Kapalua Beach (in Kapalua) and Lahaina Banyan Court (in Lahaina). There's much more to do: get interesting insight from Tours, enjoy the sand and surf at Wailea Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Ho'okipa Beach Park.

To find photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Kihei trip planning site .

You can fly from Honolulu to Kihei in 2.5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of flight and taxi; or do a combination of flight and car. In August, plan for daily highs up to 90°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
