Honolulu, Oahu — 3 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.
USS Arizona Memorial and Bishop Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Lanikai Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. There's much more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

For photos, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu travel planner.

You can fly from Koloa to Honolulu in 2.5 hours. February in Honolulu sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 69°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Fri) to allow time to fly to Hilo.

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.

Venture out of the city with trips to Wailea (Wailea Beach & Makena Beach) and Kalepolepo Beach Park (in Kihei). There's still lots to do: trek along Kapalua Coastal Trail, take in the exciting artwork at Village Galleries in Lahaina, and pause for some photo ops at Lahaina Jodo Mission.

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.
