Honolulu, Oahu

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's much more to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

To see more things to do, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary tool.

Minneapolis to Honolulu is an approximately 10-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -4 hour difference. In June, Honolulu is a bit warmer than Minneapolis - with highs of 86°F and lows of 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Kula.

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. Start off your visit on the 17th (Wed): explore the striking landscape at Haleakala Crater and then discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Keep things going the next day: immerse yourself in nature at Iao Valley, observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center, and then kick back and relax at Ho'okipa Beach Park.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Kula trip planner.

You can fly from Honolulu to Kula in 4 hours. Expect a daytime high around 87°F in June, and nighttime lows around 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) 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.
