Lahaina, Maui

— 3 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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Zipline and Napili Beach. Kids will appreciate attractions like Parasailing & Paragliding and Kapalua Coastal Trail. Venture out of the city with trips to Wailea (Keawakapu Beach, Ulua Beach, &more). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Honolua Bay, look for gifts at The Jewelry Stand Maui, enjoy the sand and surf at D.T. Fleming Park, and contemplate the long history of Old Lahaina Courthouse.

For where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Lahaina trip maker website.

Honolulu, Oahu

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.

You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa), Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo) and Sharks Cove (in Pupukea). And it doesn't end there: head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and hike along Koko Crater Railway Trail.

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.
