Lahaina, Maui — 2 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.
Escape the urban bustle at Zipline and Ho'okipa Beach Park. We've included these beaches for you: Napili Beach and D.T. Fleming Park. Explore Lahaina's surroundings by going to Wailea (Ulua Beach, Makena Beach, &more). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Honolua Bay, stroll around Lahaina Banyan Court, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kapalua Beach, and trek along Kapalua Coastal Trail.

To see more things to do, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Lahaina trip maker.

Honolulu, Oahu — 4 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.
Get a sense of the local culture at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park and Waimea Valley. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lanikai Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Shark's Cove (in Pupukea), Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

Hawaii travel guide

4.4
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.
