Hilo, Island of Hawaii

One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
Kick off your visit on the 20th (Sun): whizz through the canopy at Skyline Hawaii - Big Island Zipline Tours, kick back and relax at Richardson Beach Park, then kick back and relax at Carlsmith Beach Park, and finally admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens.

To find maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Hilo online holiday planner.

Houston to Hilo is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Houston to Hilo due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit cooler temperatures when traveling from Houston in June; daily highs in Hilo reach 83°F and lows reach 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel to Lahaina.

Lahaina, 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.
For shopping fun, head to Maui Hands or Pakaloha Bikinis. You'll get in some beach time at Kapalua Beach and Kahekili Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Wailea (Keawakapu Beach, Ulua Beach, &more). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Old Lahaina Courthouse, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, stroll through Kapalua Coastal Trail, and fly like a bird with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

Plan my trip to Lahaina with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by flight from Hilo to Lahaina takes 3.5 hours. June in Lahaina sees daily highs of 84°F and lows of 72°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) so you can travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step off the beaten path and head to Lanikai Beach and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get in touch with nature at Photography Tours and Halona Blowhole. Step out of Honolulu to go to Waimanalo and see Waimanalo Beach, which is approximately 34 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: get close to the beloved marine mammals with Dolphin Quest, hike along Lanikai Pillboxes, and stop by Shirokiya Japan Village Walk.

To see ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Honolulu road trip planner.

Traveling by flight from Lahaina to Honolulu takes 3.5 hours. In June, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 74°F. On the 26th (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
