Honolulu

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 out of Honolulu to go to Kailua and see Kailua Beach Park, which is approximately 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, explore and take pictures at Diamond Head State Monument, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, read Honolulu online trip builder .

Atlanta to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Atlanta to Honolulu. Traveling from Atlanta in February, expect Honolulu to be much warmer, temps between 81°F and 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Kihei.

Kihei

Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Go for a jaunt from Kihei to Haleakala National Park to see Haleakala Crater about 1h 25 min away. There's much more to do: admire all the interesting features of Hana Highway - Road to Hana, observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and enjoy the sand and surf at Kalepolepo Beach Park.

To find ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Kihei online sightseeing planner .

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Kihei takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and taxi; or do a combination of flight and car. Expect a daytime high around 81°F in February, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 21st (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
