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 get in some beach time at Kapiolani Regional Park and Kailua Beach Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like Waimea Bay and Laniakea Beach. Go for a jaunt from Honolulu to Kapolei to see Ko Olina Lagoons about 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, take in the dramatic natural features at Halona Blowhole, get to know the fascinating history of Nuuanu Pali Lookout, and get great views at Puu Ualakaa State Park.

To find traveler tips, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, read Honolulu vacation trip planner.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Wed): examine the collection at Jagger Museum, contemplate the geological forces at Kilauea, and then cruise along Devastation Trail. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 6th (Thu): explore the striking landscape at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), explore the striking landscape at Holei Sea Arch, and then trek along Kilauea Iki Trail.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Volcano travel itinerary creator.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Honaunau Bay and Kahaluu Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kealakekua Bay and Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve. Step out of Kailua-Kona with an excursion to Anaehoomalu in Waikoloa--about 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take a memorable tour with Jack's Diving Locker, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour.

To see photos, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Kailua-Kona itinerary builder.

Getting from Volcano to Kailua-Kona by car takes about 2.5 hours. Traveling from Volcano in July, plan for a bit warmer nights in Kailua-Kona, with lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Ka'anapali.
