Honolulu, Oahu

— 2 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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lanikai Beach and Koko Crater Railway Trail. Step out of the city life by going to Diamond Head State Monument and Sharks Cove. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Waimea Valley & Sunset Beach Park). There's still lots to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, explore the striking landscape at Halona Blowhole, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Puu Ualakaa State Park.

For more things to do, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip planner.

Greenville to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 88°F in July, and nighttime lows around 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Tue) early enough to travel to Lihue.

Crown Jewel of 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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Napili Beach and Kamaole Beach Park III. Relax by the water at Ho'okipa Beach Park and Kapalua Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Maui Tropical Plantation (in Wailuku) and Kamaole Beach Park II (in Kihei). There's lots more to do: whizz through the canopy at Skyline Hawaii - Ka'anapali Maui, look for all kinds of wild species at Honolua Bay, kick back and relax at D.T. Fleming Park, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

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.
