Honolulu — 3 nights

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Honolulu is known for historic sites, wildlife, and sightseeing. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: tour the pleasant surroundings at Diamond Head State Monument, take a tour of Battleship Missouri Memorial, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, and explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial.

To see where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read Honolulu trip itinerary maker.

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Toronto in June, with highs in Honolulu at 35°C and lows at 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sun) so you can fly to Lahaina.

The Valley Isle
The second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands, Maui features a rugged landscape ranging from high mountain peaks to deep valleys. Half of Maui lies within 8 km (5 mi) of the coastline, and most tourists come for the sandy beaches, many of them backed by fashionable resorts offering every modern convenience. Diversity of tourist attractions is Maui's major allure, with each of the island's shores offering a different set of vacation ideas. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, or hike over the otherworldly landscapes of the world's biggest dormant volcano. A foodie paradise, the island also features dozens of small farms and gourmet restaurants.
