Kula, Maui

Kula is a district of Maui, Hawaii, that stretches across the "up-country", the western-facing slopes of Haleakalā, from Makawao to Ulupalakua. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center and then get impressive views of Haleakala Crater.

Honolulu, Oahu

— 5 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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Diamond Head State Monument and USS Arizona Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace.

To find other places to visit, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu trip app.

Getting from Kula to Honolulu by flight takes about 4 hours. In June, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 74°F. On the 8th (Mon), you'll have the morning to explore before heading 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.
