According to our buddy @airfarewatchdog, there are quite a few under-$450 roundtrip flights to Hawaii from many US Cities. But if you can't decide among the six islands—Kauai, Oahu, the Big Island, Molokai, Lanai and Maui—there's a 15-day cruise that will island hop. The $1,299 cruise includes meals and accommodations. Be one of the first 50 to reserve your cabin on the Celebrity Century, and you'll score a $250 credit to use on the boat.
Hawaii is good to visit year-round. If you travel between now and November, you'll find it's warmer—averaging between 75 to 88 degrees—and drier. Take advantage of the warm weather and check out Hawaii's newest UNESCO World Heritage site, own list of Heritage Sites, volcanoes or just drive the road to Hana. Or you can just be way less ambitious and just veg out at the black-sand beach with a pina colada.
