Have you booked a trip to Hawaii for 2013 yet? On and off since late fall, we’ve seen jaw-droppingly low fares from Hawaiian Airlines, offering non-stop service to the 50th State. And they’re back again this week.
Depart from New York City and head to the Aloha State’s capital, Honolulu, for just $365, round-trip, taxes included. For a more laid-back vacation on the islands of Maui, Kauai, or Kona (The Big Island), add just $13. For less than $400, you could trade next week’s chilly New York forecast for Hawaiian paradise. Seriously.
The call for a Hawaiian getaway isn’t exclusive to the Big Apple. Low rates are also available for those who call Los Angeles ($309+), San Francisco ($299+), Portland, Oregon ($329+), or Seattle ($329+) home. Use our TravelSearch price comparison tool to review rates for departures from Chicago and Detroit, and secure your airfare before prices shoot back up. These fares are good for travel before March 15.
As nice as it may sound, we wouldn’t want you sleeping on the beach once arrive on the islands. If Honolulu is your destination, book a stay at the Pacific Beach Hotel for $196 per night (20 percent off). In Maui, choose the Aston Kaanapali Shores, set on a picturesque beach, for $242 per night (30 percent off). Over on the Big Island, rates for condos at the Castle Kona Bali Kai start at $142 per night (50 percent off). And on Kauai, relax at a the plantation-style Aston Islander on The Beach for $132 per night (30 percent off).
There’s no shortage of beach bumming, rain forest hiking, big wave surfing, and more to do in Hawaii. Use our Hawaii destination guides to determine which island best suits your vacation needs, and narrow down your list of must-do activities for your island adventure.
