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.
Honolulu is known for historic sites, wildlife, and sightseeing. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, and browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center.

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.
Start off your visit on the 26th (Wed): appreciate the history behind Lahaina Jodo Mission, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Ka'anapali Beach. On the 27th (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: walk around Lahaina Banyan Court, take an in-depth tour of Baldwin Home Museum, then meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center, and finally admire the majestic nature at Iao Valley.

To find more things to do, reviews, maps, and tourist information, use the Lahaina online driving holiday planner.

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.
