Honolulu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Rainbow Scuba Hawaii as well as Koko Crater Railway Trail. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Photography Tours and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Visiting Lanikai Beach and Sharks Cove will get you outdoors. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Haleiwa (Waimea Valley, Waimea Bay, &more). There's much more to do: stroll through Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, make a trip to North Shore, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip builder app.

Kansas City to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 4 hours. Traveling from Kansas City in February, things will get much warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 81°F and lows about 69°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Mon) so you can travel to Lahaina.

Lahaina

Lahaina ©
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.
Get outdoors at Ho'okipa Beach Park and Keawakapu Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kapalua Coastal Trail and Wailea Beach Path. Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Kihei (Kamaole Beach Park II, Kamaole Beach Park III, &more), Wailea (Ulua Beach, Polo Beach, &more) and Zipline (in Haiku). There's lots more to do: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, kick back and relax at D.T. Fleming Park, take an in-depth tour of Baldwin Home Museum, and stroll through Kapalua Beach.

For traveler tips, photos, maps, and more tourist information, use the Lahaina travel planner.

You can fly from Honolulu to Lahaina in 3.5 hours. Other options are to do a combination of flight and ferry; or do a combination of flight and bus. In March in Lahaina, expect temperatures between 78°F during the day and 67°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
