In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, take a memorable drive along Makapu'u Point, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and make a trip to Battleship Missouri Memorial.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, use the Honolulu trip maker app .

Detroit to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train and flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Detroit to Honolulu is minus 5 hours. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Detroit in April: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 83°F and lows are around 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) to allow time to 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. On the 9th (Thu), immerse yourself in nature at Iao Valley, then see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and then make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court. On the 10th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center and then get impressive views of Haleakala Crater.

Plan my Kula trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Kula takes 4 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and taxi. In April, daily temperatures in Kula can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 68°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
