In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, examine the collection at Hawaiian Mission Houses Historic Site and Archives, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Diamond Head State Monument.

To find maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Honolulu travel route planner.

Fort Wayne to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. When traveling from Fort Wayne in September, plan for somewhat warmer days in Honolulu, with highs around 88°F, while nights are much hotter with lows around 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to 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.
On the 21st (Mon), pause for some photo ops at Lahaina Jodo Mission, then take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and then kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach. On the 22nd (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire the majestic nature at Iao Valley, then get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, and then walk around Lahaina Banyan Court.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, read our Lahaina trip planner.

Getting from Honolulu to Lahaina by flight takes about 3.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 86°F in September, and nighttime lows around 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) so you can travel back home.
