Chicago to Hawaii Travel Guide

When you're looking for a tropical escape from the hustle and bustle of the Windy City, Hawaii makes a great choice. With their perfect weather and laid-back lifestyle, the Hawaiian Islands can help you relax and recharge. Whether you want to kick back with a book on Hulopoe Beach or hike through the jungle on the Manoa Falls Trail, the friendly locals and well-developed infrastructure make your journey a breeze. A direct flight between Chicago and Hawaii reduces travel time, so you can reach the islands quickly.

Hawaii is the perfect island vacation spot for travelers from Chicago: it's accessible by a direct flight, and it requires no passport or customs. Once you arrive on Oahu or Maui, you'll be greeted with balmy breezes and smiling locals. If you're longing for sunshine and sunbathing, head for the islands' many stunning beaches. On Maui, try Kaanapali Beach or Wailea Beach, and on the Big Island, check out the unusual Punaluu Black Sand Beach. If you're visiting Honolulu, the famous Waikiki Beach is a must-see. When you're ready to get out into the wild, check out the lava flows at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park or hike through the otherworldly landscapes of Haleakala National Park. Cool off in Hanakapiai Falls, or marvel at the steep cliffs of the Na Pali Coast.
