Lahaina, Maui

— 4 nights

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 find plenty of places to visit near Lahaina: Maui Veterans Cemetery (in Makawao) and Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park). Spend the 7th (Fri) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's lots more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, stroll around Lahaina Banyan Court, pause for some serene contemplation at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church, and wander the streets of Lahaina Front Street.

To find maps, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Lahaina trip website.

Honolulu, Oahu

— 6 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Haleiwa (Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach Park, &more), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). There's still lots to do: stroll through Diamond Head State Monument, stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

To see photos, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, read our Honolulu trip planner.

Traveling by flight from Lahaina to Honolulu takes 4 hours. In May, daily temperatures in Honolulu can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) to allow time to 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.
