Hana

— 4 nights
Hana is one of the most isolated communities in Hawaii, with a permanent population of just over 1,000 people.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kipahulu (Palapala Ho'omau Church & Charles Lindbergh's Grave) and Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park). Spend the 4th (Fri) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Wai'anapanapa State Park, explore by horseback at Pipiwai Trail, stroll through Red Sand Beach - Kaihalulu Beach, and pause for some photo ops at Fagan's Cross.

For photos, reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Hana trip maker.

Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Madison in December, with highs in Hana at 82°F and lows at 66°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Mon) so you can go by car to Kihei.

The Valley Isle
The second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands, Maui features a rugged landscape ranging from high mountain peaks to deep valleys. Half of Maui lies within 8 km (5 mi) of the coastline, and most tourists come for the sandy beaches, many of them backed by fashionable resorts offering every modern convenience. Diversity of tourist attractions is Maui's major allure, with each of the island's shores offering a different set of vacation ideas. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, or hike over the otherworldly landscapes of the world's biggest dormant volcano. A foodie paradise, the island also features dozens of small farms and gourmet restaurants.
